Thermal imaging-based investigation of stimuli-responsive nanomaterials in complex environments

Stimuli-responsive nanomaterials are nanoscale materials that exhibit the ability to generate heat upon stimulation (alternative magnetic field, light, etc.). Together with the Adolphe Merkle Institute (Prof. Alke Fink) and the University of Fribourg (Prof. Marco Lattuada), we are developing new thermography-based measurement methods to investigate stimuli-responsive nanomaterials in complex environments like tissue or cells.
Several years ago, we were the first to propose lock-in thermal imaging (LIT) as the optimal method to detect, characterize and quantify nanoparticles "in-situ". Since then, we protected our invention with 2 patents, published numerous scientifc results and created the spin-off company NanoLockin GmbH (CEO: Dr. Christoph Geers). We are constantly improving and further developing the technology with our partners to establish LIT as the new gold standard in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology.
