Nanopores in 2D Materials

Aleksandra Radenovic (École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne) — May 15, 2018

Abstract :
In this talk I will address novel applications ranging from identification of single nucleotides, but as well go beyond DNA sequencing and provide effective ways for DNA mapping and barcoding. To identify or barcode DNA, we use novel solid state nanopore platform based on atomically thin nanopore membranes in 2D materials such as graphene or molybdenum disulfide for DNA detection, sequencing, water desalination and osmotic power generation.

Biography :
Aleksandra Radenovic is Associate Professor at EPFL and head of the Laboratory of Nanoscale Biology. Her research is devoted to single molecule biophysics. She develops physical methods, based on optical imaging and bio-sensing, to monitor the behavior of individual biological molecules and complexes, both in-vitro as well as in living cells.
