Nobel Laureate visits LANIR Lab

Nobel Laureate, Prof. Stefan Hell, recently visited one of the LANIR Microscopes developed during the EC cofunded  LANIR project and based at the Partner UPB.

Prof Hell of the Max Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry, Göttingen, Germany won the Nobel Prize in 2014 for the development of super-resolved fluorescence microscopy.

Publication - Nature Scientific Reports - High-resolution quantitative determination of dielectric function by using s-SNOM


A new method for high-resolution quantitative measurement of the dielectric function by using scattering scanning near-field optical microscopy (s-SNOM) is presented. The method is based on a calibration procedure that uses the s-SNOM oscillating dipole model of the probe-sample interaction and quantitative s-SNOM measurements. The nanoscale capabilities of the method have the potential to enable novel applications in various fields such as nano-electronics, nano-photonics, biology or medicine.

Meeting - LANIR 36 Month Meeting at GNR, Italy, 16 - 17 March 2015




The LANIR Month 36 meeting took place in the facilities of GNR outside Milan in Italy on 16 and 17 March 2015.There was a strong focus by partners on delivering on the objectives of the project with the project end now approaching.

Partners focus was also on how best to achieve the impact from the project and allow for the future exploitation of the research undertaken during the project.
