Upcoming publication : review on biophotonics applications of nanoapertures
Nanometric apertures in a metallic film are easy to produce, robust and highly reproducible nanophotonic devices that possess a number of desirable properties for biophotonics. In a special issue of the International Journal of Materials and Product Technology, I will describe some exciting applications of sub-wavelength apertures towards the sensitive and specific characterization of molecules.
Outline : 1/ introducing nanoapertures, 2/ Performing FCS in reduced volumes, 3/ Single molecule analysis in a nanohole, 4/ Sub-diffraction diffusion analysis within lipidic membranes, 5/ Fluorescence emission enhancement, 6/ Biosensing applications of sub-wavelength apertures.
