Nanosurf works with many international partners, ranging from universities to industry to the public sector, on cutting edge scientific advancements, new types of applications for AFM and related technologies, and public projects, e.g. to establish nanotechnology networks.
Major objective of the Cluster's work is the continuous development of a nanotechnology competence network for an efficient transfer of latest R&D-results into marketable products as well as the promotion of cooperations aiming at concrete projects. The Nanoinitiative Bayern is responsible for the cluster management.
European Soft Matter InfrastructureEUSMI provides the community of European soft-matter researchers with an open-access infrastructure as a platform to support and extend their research, covering characterization, synthesis, and modeling.
As one of the 15 partners, Nanosurf will provide transnational access to a Flex-ANA system in Langen, Germany. This system is an automated solution for AFM-based nanomechanical analysis.
More about Flex-ANA.
The ‘Manipulating and Harvesting of Cell Components for Cryo-Electron Microscopy (NFP4CryoEM)’ project with TU Delft concerns advances in cryo-electron microscopy (cryo-EM). This technology makes it possible to depict the three-dimensional organisation of an individual ‘vitrified’ cell at nanometre level. The project uses AFM to make better samples by directly extracting specific components from the cell, and preparing them for research.
