Master’s Projects Available: “Short Range Interactions of Fluorescent Dyes”

We are currently offering a masters research project for students of Experimental Physics, or for preference, Nanomaterials Science in our lab (Molecular Biophysics). The research concerns energy transfer and quenching effects observed in fiducial markers for CLEM* and fluorescent labels used in super-resolution microscopy. You will find the full project description and contact details after the break.

New Publication: “Fluorescently Labelled Silica Coated Gold Nanoparticles as Fiducial Markers for Correlative Light and Electron Microscopy”

I am happy to report that the results of single-particle experiements on fluorescent fiducial markers by PhD candidate Jantina and bachelor student Tom have been published in the journal “Scientific Research“.

Focus On Microscopy in Bordeaux

This week, several members of our group will attend the Focus On Microscopy Conference in Bordeaux, France. There, we will present a poster and give two talks:

In addition, may I wholeheartly recommend a talk by one of our colleagues from the Soft Condensed Matter Group:
