Biofunctional core-shell nanoparticle deposition for biochip creation by printing processes

, , , , , , ,
Nanoparticles display a very large surface-area. Therefore, coatings of functional nanoparticles adsorbed to a solid substrate yield an enlarged interface per footprint-area which is highly appreciated for probe-immobilization in bio-chip technology [1,2]. Silica nanospheres, equipped [...]

Surface Nanostructuration: from coatings to MEMS fabrication

, , , , , , , , , , , , ,
The fabrication of surfaces and films with controlled nanometer features is currently an active area of research. The design of complex nanoarchitectures with novel physical properties has potential applications in many existing and emerging fields [...]

Nanostructured thin layers of vanadium oxides doped with cobalt, prepared by pulsed laser ablation: structure, chemistry, morphology, and magnetism

, , , , , ,
The present study deals with cobalt-doped vanadium oxide thin layers prepared by pulsed laser ablation. Variation of the preparation parameters allows one to synthesize films with a variety of properties. The chemical composition of the [...]

Templated virus deposition: from molecular-scale force measurements to kinetic Monte Carlo simulations

, , , , , , , , ,
The use of macromolecular scaffolds for hierarchical organization of molecules and materials is a common strategy in living systems that leads to emergent behavior. One characteristic of this strategy is that it generates micron-scale structures [...]
