Nanofluidics & Particle Manipulation  (NP1)





Welcome to the website of the Junior Research Group “Nanofluidics & Particle Manipulation”!

Our international team is currently comprised of members from the Institute of Microtechnology and the Institute for Particle Technology and we are involved in the synthesis, stabilization, manipulation, and characterization of nanoparticles in microfluidicsystems.

The research topics of the Junior Research Group “Nanofluidics & Particle manipulation” are:

  • The generation, stabilization / dispersion and separation of standardized, spherical and non-spherical nanoparticles
  • The generation of defined particle aggregates for the characterization of application-related particle systems
  • Investigations of particle-particle and particle-wall interactions in the nanofluidic system
  • Establishment of electronic and optical precision measurements of nanoparticles
  • Investigations of hydrodynamic and electrokinetic transport phenomena
  • Analysis of the fractionation of particles by nanofluidic chromatography
