  • Picture of the month: Nanodiamonds entrapped by neutrophil extracellular traps (NETs)

    01. December 2017 Due to the increasing use of nanotechnology, humans are daily exposed to nanoparticles which may trespass the body’s barriers. Within the EAM project Nanosafety, we showed that small (10 – 40 nm) hydrophobic nanoparticles lead to the fast damage of plasma membranes and instability of the lysosomal... more »

  • Picture of the month: Optical Tamm defect states in hybrid photonic-plasmonic crystals

    06. November 2017 Optical Tamm states are interface waves confined between Bragg and metal mirrors. They are formed in photonic bandgaps and diminish functionality of photonic crystals. Under the umbrella of EAM, we have discovered and explained interface resonances in self-assembled 3-dimensional plasmonic-... more »
