Research

  • Single-molecule spectroscopy of hybrid nanostructures and multichromophoric systems: We study fundamental aspects of single-molecule photophysics including chromophore interactions with plasmonic nanostructures, for light harvesting and energy conversion.
     
  • Single-molecule sensing: Based on DNA nanotechnology and novel molecular devices, we develop new approaches for e.g. biosensing, for sensing of forces between molecules and for molecular voltage sensors.
     
  • Single-Molecule and Superresolution Microscopy: We develop new superresolution methods including DNA PAINT; DNA origami nanorulers and tools for studying biomolecular machines including enzymes and transcription complexes, biomolecular structures as well as conformational changes and other transformations.
