at the interface of nanotechnology and life sciences

Molecular sensing technologies


This research line encompasses the research and development of techniques and methods, based on micro- and nanotechnology, for the sensitive and selective detection of molecular compounds. In close collaboration with a number of SMEs, the University of Twente and the research group NanoPhysics we focus on the further development of a "proof-of-principle" towards an actual demonstrator, specific for an application. 


 Current projects in this research line:



Sensors for detection of explosives

Labelfree detection of insulin (finished)
