Publication: Plasmonics Enhanced Smartphone Fluorescence Microscopy
Smartphone fluorescence microscopy has various applications in point-of-care (POC) testing and diagnostics. An important need in smartphone-based microscopy and sensing techniques is to improve the detection sensitivity. Here, the latest Open Access publication by Dr. Acuna, Prof. Tinnefeld and partners from the University of California demonstrates a general strategy to enhance the detection sensitivity of a smartphone-based fluorescence microscope by using surface-enhanced fluorescence (SEF) created by a thin metal-film.

Microchips replacing microscopes
Start-up project Superlight Photonics plans to make it big with tiny LEDs: In terms of location, Superlight Photonics is already at the top: its office is on the 14th (and top) floor of the TU tower block on Hans-Sommer-Straße. From here, the six researchers plan to take over the nano world, not only scientifically but also commercially speaking. The centrepiece of their technology: nanometre-sized blue light-emitting diodes (LEDs) made of gallium nitride.

Challenging European Research Project to Develop New Tiny Microscopes

The Institute of Semiconductor Technology (Waag Lab) and the Institute of Physical and Theoretical Chemistry (Tinnefeld Lab) both members of the Laboratory for Emerging Nanometrology (LENA) at Technische Universität Braunschweig are partners in a new European research project entitled ChipScope, which aims to develop a completely new and extremely small optical microscope capable of observing the interior of living cells in real time. A consortium of 7 partners from 5 countries will tackle this issue with very ambitious objectives during a four-year research program.

To demonstrate the usefulness of this new scientific tool, at the end of the project the developed chip-sized microscope will be used to observe in real-time the interior of cells present in a disease called Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF), a chronic age-related lung disease killing 0.5 Million people each year worldwide.

Publication: Mirage effect induced by optical antennas at the nanoscale

During the last decade, scientists have focused on the study of antennas which are approximately a billion times smaller than the typical antenna sticking out of our bathroom radio. These antennas are based on metallic nanostructures of different materials (such as for example gold) and different shapes (such as for example spheres). Furthermore, these antennas can also act as receivers and emitters of electromagnetic radiation but at much shorter wavelengths, in the sub-micrometer range covering the optical spectrum. These optical antennas are of great interest to control light at the nanoscale beyond common optical resolution.

Scientists at TU-Braunschweig directed by Prof. Philip Tinnefeld and junior research group leader Dr. Guillermo Acuna (Institute for Physical Chemistry, Laboratory of Emerging Nanometrology) have performed novel contributions to the understanding of these optical antennas. To this end, they have employed the so-called DNA origami technique to place gold spherical nanoparticles next to fluorescent molecules.

NanoMet | Research Training Group 1952/1 »Metrology for Complex Nanosystems«


The advancement of metrology as the science of precise and traceable measurements is the indispensable basis for future progress not only in natural sciences and technology, but also for trade and society. The quest for higher precision, better standardization, ubiquitous calibration and primary standards drives the metrological research of today. At the heart of metrology is traceability to the SI units as the establishment of a documented unbroken chain of calibrations complemented by the analysis of all contributions to measurement uncertainty, i.e. of the complete error budget.

One emerging topic is the metrology of nanosystems. Here a limited number of parameters of a measurand can be dealt with using established concepts for obtaining traceability with small measurement uncertainty, but many important measurands require new approaches.

In particular, challenges arise from multiparametric interdependencies that determine complex measurands. For traceability of such measurands in biological nanosystems new approaches are also needed for many reasons, including self-organization, cell growth, and matrix effects. Moreover, quantum effects, such as entanglement, are especially important in nanosystems. They compromise the independence of different measurements and require new paradigms of traceability and measurement uncertainty determination.

The Technische Universität Braunschweig (TU BS) and the Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB) organise the research training group NanoMet to establish new routes towards traceability of measurands of complex nanosystems.

We focus on methods in three fields of nanometrology: complex measurands with multiparametric interdependencies, complex measurands in biological nanosystems, and measurands based on quantum effects determine the scientific training programme. This interdisciplinary approach will lead to a better understanding and application of general strategies to achieve traceability of novel measurands emerging in complex nanosystems.

Joint mentoring by scientists from the TU Braunschweig and the German national metrology institute PTB is a unique feature of this research training group ensuring that its graduates will gain an in-depth understanding of the established and novel concepts of metrology and its application in upcoming fields of technology.



Der Fortschritt der Metrologie als der Wissenschaft vom präzisen und rückführbaren Messenist eine unverzichtbare Basis für den zukünftigen Fortschritt in Naturwissenschaft und Technologie und darüber hinaus für Handel und Gesellschaft. Die metrologische Forschung von heute wird bestimmt von den Herausforderungen nach höherer Präzision, besserer Standardisierung, genauerer Kalibrierung und gut verfügbaren Primärstandards. Das Herz der Metrologie bildet die Rückführbarkeit auf die SI-Einheiten, die durch eine ununterbrochene, wohl dokumentierte Kette von Kalibrierungen und letztlich die Rückführung auf die Primärstandards, die durch die Analyse aller Beiträge zur Messunsicherheit, d.h. des gesamten Fehlerbudgets, ergänzt wird.

Ein neu entstehender Bereich der Metrologie bezieht sich auf Nanosysteme. Solange nur eine begrenzte Anzahl von Messgrößen vorliegt, können etablierte Konzepte angewendet werden, um Rückführbarkeit mit kleiner Messunsicherheit zu erreichen. Viele sehr wichtige Messgrößen der Nanometrologie erfordern jedoch neue Herangehensweisen. Insbesondere entstehen neue Herausforderungen durch gegenseitige Abhängigkeiten vieler Parameter einer komplexen Messgröße der Nanometrologie. Die Vielfalt und Varianz solcher Messgrößen in biologischen Nanosystemen erfordert ebenfalls neue Konzepte. Dies ist u.a. durch die Größe und Struktur der Messgrößen bedingt. So müssen z.B. wenn es um Funktionen geht, häufig verschiedene strukturelle Ebenen betrachtet werden (Stichwort: Proteomics).

Darüber hinaus werden in Nanosystemen Quanteneffekte besonders wichtig, die insbesondere für Primärstandards immer größere Bedeutung erlangen, beispielsweise die Verschränkung einzelner Photonenpaare. Durch das Auftreten von Unschärferelationen verschiedener Observablen der Nanometrologie ist die Unabhängigkeit der Messungen und insbesondere ihrer Messunsicherheit nicht mehr gegeben und erfordert neue Paradigmen der Rückführbarkeit und zur Bestimmung der Messunsicherheit.
