Welcome to Nanoionics, part of the MESA+ Institute of Nanotechnology and of the Faculty of Science and Technology at the University of Twente, the Netherlands.

We are a recently founded, internationally oriented group conducting fundamental research on electrostatics and electron transfer in liquid, and simultaneously exploring new concepts for fluidic technologies based on this new understanding. Recent and current research topics include for example carbon nanotube and graphene (bio)sensors, the physics of charge inversion and DNA condensation by multivalent ions, the fundamentals of electrophoresis, high frequency CMOS-based nanosensors, electrochemical detection of single molecules in nanofluidic devices, and (most recently, with James Seddon joining our group!) the nanoscopic structure of solid-liquid interfaces.
