Projects at our lab focus on the development of new techniques and instrumentation as well as applications on biological systems, ranging from single cells to plants, animals and humans. The Fraunhofer EZRT/MRB, as a former spin off of EP5, is joining our efforts.
Being a very young technology, MPI allows to localize magnetic nanoparticles in living organisms and promises high diagnostic potential. RDS was invented in Würzburg during our research on MPI and can highly sensitivly examine environmental conditions of magnetic nanoparticles.
This is another main area of reseach at our department. Our mission is to obtain fundamental control over light-matter interaction by controling the flow of light at the nanometer scale down to the size of single atoms, molecules, and quantum dots.
