Nanoscale Imaging of Bilogical, Chemical, and Physical Processes
One part of our work is to develop systems for in-situ TEM studies of nanoscale processes. We work on gas phase reactions on microfabricated heaters and novel chips systems to image processes in liquids. Another part of our work is exploring interactions between cells and nanostructures. We are developing focused ion beam milling combined with scanning electron microscopy to provide 3D images of cells based on standard and cryogenic fixation methods. We are also studying how cells move on nanostructured surfaces and how the surface chemistry and geometry influences the cell motility and developing time lapse microscopy techniques for this.
It is always possible to do a student project within these research areas.
We have posted several suggestions for student projects in the DTU database.
Currently we have a Ph.d position open: Nanoscale Imaging of the Aqueous Processes of Precipitation, Dispersion, and Imbibition
