Periodic Reporting for period 2 - FLUINEMS (Suspended Fluidic nanochannels as optomechanical sensors for single molecules)
Berichtszeitraum: 2019-06-01 bis 2020-11-30
In this project, we aim at the development of a device and associated read out methods for single molecule (e.g. protein or DNA) detection, identification and quantification. The device should be able to detect a variety of molecules, even when they are mixed. The objectives are the development of a nanodevice and its associated technology and cleanroom fabrication processes, the development and improvement of a sensitive enough read out method (optical, electrical, or a combination of both) and the proof of concept for the detection of molecules one by one.
