Molecular Nanoengineering

The Molecular Nanoengineering operates at the interface between nanoscience, molecular self-assembly, DNA nanotechnology and nanoplasmonics with particular focus on DNA-based artificial molecular systems with functionalities tailored for biosensing, nanoplasmonics and biomimetics.

Nantech brought nearly one hundred international researchers to Espoo

Understanding of computer science and mathematics becomes increasingly important in the field of DNA nanotechnology, says Professor Pekka Orponen

Self-assembled nanostructures can be selectively controlled

DNA self-assembly allows the unprecedented control of the optical properties of plasmonic metamolecules.


DNA builder gets inspiration from nature

Being able to build things in nanoscale can lead to useful bioinspired applications, says Assistant Professor Anton Kuzyk.
