Nouran's communication about a chemical protection of PDMS during O2 plasma activation in order to prevent surface cracks in Soft Matter is online. The paper demonstrates how a facile silanization protocol can be used to render the surface of PDMS hydrophilic over the course of...
Today, our new Keyence VK-X250 confocal 3D microscope arrived! The system allows the measurement of surface profiles or layer thicknesses with a lateral resolution of down to approx. 100 nm and a normal resolution of down to 0.5 nm. The microscope will be used to establish a lab...
Dmitry's paper on interfacing graphene transistors and cells was published in Scientific Reports. The paper demonstrates the fabrication of graphene-based transistors of different geometries on various substrates. Furthermore, extracellular recordings of ex vivo heart tissue...
Sabine, Tina, Omid, Leroy, and Bernhard participated in this year's TUM campus run. Congrats to everybody for making it through the 11 km course!
In our projects section, there is a new Master's projects available. It is concerned with the design and implementation of a system to control ambient parameters (humidity and temperature) during the fabrication of sensor arrays via capillary plotting.
Philipp's chapter on electrochemical nanocavity devices in the Springer Series on Chemical Sensors and Biosensors is now online.
Bernd's paper demonstrating the inkjet-based fabrication of 64-electrode, 200 µm-pitch gold MEAs is online at Printed and Flexible Electronics.
Stanley has successfully published his paper about stereolithographically printed microfluidic filters to separate plasma from heparinized blood samples within less than 10 s and without diluting the sample.
