Silicon Nanostructures

The research group investigates nanostructured silicon for (bio)photonic applications, e.g. for drug delivery or as a contrast agent for medical imaging. For this purpose, the group combines the synthesis of 0-3D silicon nanostructures using top-down and bottom-up methods with the fundamental structural and electronic characterization of nanostructures, which possess a number of new physical and chemical properties, which are used jointly with partners for applications in (bio)photonics and nanomedicine.

Selected Research Topics

  • Porous silicon nanostructures for personalized therapy
  • Nanostructured silicon surface engineering for hydrogen production.
  • Controlled self-assembly of functional metals in porous matrices for biosensing.
