Biomolecules in nanochannels and separation devices The aim of this project is to develop a nanofluidic device, which uses electrokinetics to separate biomolecules.
Bubblepump In this project fluid manipulation for micro chemical systems is studied. The focus is on nanofluidic devices and networks, made by thin film Integrated Fluidics ("IF") technology.
Electrowetting The objective of this project is to make electrically tunable surfaces in silicon microchannels for the control of fluid flow and catalysis. To accomplish this, self-assembled monolayers (SAMs) are used; SAMs form ultrathin, covalently bound, chemical interfaces of typically a few nanometers thick.
Flow sensing and control in nanochannels In the past years the BIOS-chair has gained a lot of knowledge in downscaling systems for biomedical and environmental applications.
Micro- and nanodevices In this project fluid manipulation for micro chemical systems is studied. The focus is on nanofluidic devices and networks, made by thin film Integrated Fluidics ("IF") technology.
Ion-selection in nanochannels using double layer effects The aim of the project is to develop so far unrealized nanofluidic components for lab on a chip issues that allow the modification of ionic transport and concentration distribution by means of interaction of external electrical fields with electrical double layers.
Nano device and system fabrication technologies Nanochannel fabrication is still a new area, and there is great need for new production technologies of the channels themselves, and for integrated actuating and sensing/detecting elements. The aim of this project is to develop such technologies.
Solving Advanced Micromachining Problems for Ultra-Rapid and Ultra-High Resolution On-Chip Liquid Chromatography Obstacles that hamper the further development of liquid chromatography on a chip are investigated and dealt with.
