The Bio-SPM group investigates the physical and chemical properties of biomolecules and novel materials based on nano objects. To explore the functional properties of materials down to the molecular scale, we have developed and use a wide range of state-of-the-art scanning probe methods such as harmonic AFM techniques, SICM, EFM, MFM, SEM and TEM. Another important area of focus is the understanding and controlling of self-assembly of nano structures.
We are welcoming worldwide applications of all levels. If you are interested please send an email and your CV to Prof. Mingdong Dong firstname.lastname@example.org.
