We welcome Christopher, who joins us from Kiel University in Germany for his PhD in the area of plasmon mediated catalysis.
Zafer joins us from Bilkent University in Turkey for a 2-year postdoc on the topic of single particle catalysis.
Svetlana has today very successfully defended her PhD thesis and is the newest doctor in the group! We are happy that she stays with us for one more year.
Sincere thanks also to the faculty opponent Prof. Astrid Pundt, and the thesis committee members Prof. Monika Fleischer, Prof. Martin Magnusson and Dr. Andrea Baldi for making the event a great success.
Dr. Barbora Spackova joins us for a 2-year Post Doc on the topic of single particle nanoplasmonic sensing in nanofluidic structures. Welcome!
Big congrats to David for his outstanding performance at the 8th International Conference on Surface Plasmon Photonics (SPP8) held in Taiwan May 22-28, 2017 that earned him an Outstanding Student Paper Award for his talk entitled: “Single Particle Nanoplasmonic Sensing in Individual Nanofluidic Channels”.
Irem joins us after a Ph.D. at Eindhoven University in the Netherlands for a postdoc project on nanoplasmonic air quality sensing in collaboration with Insplorion AB, financed by a Mistra Innovation grant.
Christoph will present a plenary lecture entitled “Integrating Nanofluidics with Single Particle Plasmonics” at the NANOP conference on Nanophotonics and Micro/Nanooptics held in Barcelona, Spain, in September 2017
Our work in collaboration with Tommy Cedervall at Lund University is now published in Nanoscale and is entitled “Real-time in situ analysis of biocorona formation and evolution on silica nanoparticles in defined and complex biological environments”. Nanoscale, 2017 accepted manuscript.
This work is an effort within the Mistra Environmental Nanosafety research programme.
