Invited Lecture

Bio-applications of semiconductor nanowires

Tuesday (18.06.2019)
15:15 - 15:45


Semiconductor nanowires are very promising tools for biological applications. Their small dimensions, which are on the same length scale as many cell components, make them an ideal tool to probe and stimulate cells with minimal perturbation. In this talk I will review our work towards using nanowires for neural implant [1,2] and biosensor applications [3–5], as well as our studies towards understanding and controlling the cell-nanowire interface [6,7].
