Introduction about understanding interaction light - biological surfaces: possibility for new electronic materials and devices (PhoBioS)

On demand | Presented live 9 April 2024

Abstract

Various biological surfaces are known to be covered by elaborated micro- and nano-structures, serving a number of functions (e.g. anti-reflective, structural coloration, anti-fouling, pro- or anti-adhesive, etc.) and inspiring numerous industrial applications. Recent years have witnessed a remarkable boost in research in this field. To a large extent, this boost owes to the increasing interdisciplinary of approaches being applied to the study of structured biosurfaces. Sciences as different as classical zoology and botany are inseminated with the advances in genetics and molecular biology; biologists collaborate more and more with nanotechnologists, materials scientists and engineers – all these contribute to the widening of the horizons of research on micro- and nano-structured biological surfaces, and to biomimetic and bioengineering applications of these surfaces in industry. We aim at ‘riding the wave’ of these developments with our proposal. In our talk I will present the main goal of the COST Action “Understanding interaction light – biological surfaces: possibility for new electronic materials and devices”.

Fixler's research includes developing new technologies for super resolution microscopy, medical testing, and communications networks. He laid the groundwork for multidisciplinary capabilities in optics, biology, and advanced imaging techniques. His research group is able to precisely control the synthesis and to characterize GNP in different sizes, shapes, chemical coatings and targeting ligands. In addition, they have the capabilities to perform optical studies on biological samples from the cellular and subcellular level, up through the entire organism and whole-body level. He has published over 140 scientific papers, authored several book chapters and hold over 15 issued patents.
Application tracks: Sustainability , EU-funded Research
