  1. 1. Combining Nanoplasmonics and Nanofluidics for Single Particle Catalysis

    Author : David Albinsson; Chalmers tekniska högskola; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; heterogeneous catalysis; CO oxidation; plasmonic sensing; dark field scattering spectroscopy; nanocatalyst; LSPR; single particle catalysis; nanofluidics; nanoreactor; Cu oxidation;

    Abstract : Nanoparticles are, due to their large exposed surface area, widely used in the field of heterogeneous catalysis where they accelerate and steer chemical reactions. Although catalysis has been known about for centuries, the scrutiny of catalysts under realistic application conditions is still a major challenge. READ MORE

  2. 2. Nanofluidics for Static and Dynamic DNA-Protein Interaction Studies - Repair of Double-Strand Breaks from a Single-Molecule Perspective

    Author : Robin Öz; Chalmers tekniska högskola; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Single-molecule; Protein; NHEJ; Dynamic; DNA repair; HR; Biomolecule interactions; Microscopy; Fluorescence; Nanofluidics;

    Abstract : Double-strand breaks (DSBs) is one of the most lethal forms of DNA damage. A single DSB may result in stalling of vital cellular machineries, and thus, requires immediate measures by the cell. READ MORE

  3. 3. Nanofluidics as a tool for parallelized single nanoparticle characterization: Fluorescence single nanoparticle catalysis and size determination through 1D Brownian motion

    Author : Sune Levin; Chalmers tekniska högskola; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; dark field microscopy; single nanoparticle catalysis; heterogenous catalysis; particle tracking; Brownian motion; fluorescence microscopy; nanofluidics;

    Abstract : Nanoparticles exist widely in nature and are objects of study in many scientific disciplines due to their high performance in a wide range of applications. With modern techniques that facilitate creating and shaping of nanoparticles into ever more complex shapes and compositions, characterization of particle properties is essential. READ MORE

  4. 4. Biophysical studies of DNA binding – by the large filament-forming protein Rad51 and the small minor-groove binder Hoechst 33258
