The search for new, environment friendly energy sources
A new type of tiny electronic biosensors has the potential to make DNA sequencing and other bio-chemical analysis quicker and cheaper. Zhen Zhang is exploring the advanced nanofabrication technology used in microelectronics to develop a lab-on-a-chip – a miniature laboratory capable of detecting low concentrations of ions in chemical and biological samples.
At Wallenberg Academy Fellow Christian Müller’s laboratory the aim is to convert body heat into electricity.
