Colloidal Nanoplasmonics for biomedical applications
The BioNanoPlasmonics Laboratory at CIC biomaGUNE is led by Prof.
Luis M. Liz-Marzán. Our research activity is
focused on the synthesis and formation mechanisms of (plasmonic)
metal nanoparticles with controlled composition, size and
morphology; the creation of colloidal composites, including
functionalized carbon nanostructures and Janus particles;
nanostructured thin films and nanoparticle ordered arrays in one,
two and three dimensions; the optical characterization of
nanoparticles and their assemblies; and the use of metal
nanoparticles as biosensors.
