NanoVista project: photonic antennas for biology

25 Janvier 2012 , Rédigé par JW Publié dans #Recent research work

One of the ultimate challenges in biology is to understand the relationship between the structure, function and dynamics of biomolecules in their natural environment: the living cell. The goal of NANO-VISTA is to exploit novel concepts of photonic antennas to develop a new generation of bionanophotonic tools for ultrasensitive detection, nanoimaging and nanospectroscopy of biomolecules, both in-vitro and in living cells.The NANO-VISTA project, started on November 2011 is funded by the European Commission’s 7th research Framework programme.
