Understanding biological process at the single-species level is highly relevant for both molecular biology and medical application such as vaccination. The key idea of the project is the individual identification of freely diffusing viruses via inelastic light scattering in nanostructured optical fibers, establishing an unexplored and highly innovative detection platform that has the potential to reach new levels in understanding biological processes of nano-objects with obvious application in areas such as vaccine control, disease diagnostics and medication development. NBF means NanoBorFaser. 

The project is funded by the VW Foundation under the number 95097.
