Most advanced electron microscope

Aiming for complex self-assembling nanostructures

Professor Bo Brummersted Iversen, who was the driving force in financing the microscopes, gives a speech at the inauguration.

From now on, researchers at Aarhus University will have better opportunities in their work developing and creating advanced nanostructures. Purchasing the market’s most advanced electron microscopes for iNANO lays the foundation for more rapid development of the molecular nanotechnology that is a kind of engineering art on a nanoscale. The aim is to produce complex self-assembling nanostructures that can assemble molecular electronics, deliver drugs directly into cells, or act as sensors that can detect viruses.
