Biophysics and Molecular Materials

Breadcrumb Navigation



The research activities of the chair for applied physics at the Center for Nanosciences (CeNS) are focused on experiments on the nanometer length scale in the fields of biophysics and novel materials, preferentially on the single molecule level. Most experiments are designed in a combination of molecular biology, solid state-nanotechnology and supramolecular chemistry. AFM-based single molecule force spectroscopy and super-resolution fluorescence microscopy are the major experimental techniques. Monte-Carlo, ab-initio QM-calculations and molecular dynamics simulations are employed as numerical tools.
