ERC Consolidator Grant for ultra-sensitive 2D material membranes in frequency-based metrology and bacteria sensing

ERC Consolidator Grant for ultra-sensitive 2D material membranes in frequency-based metrology and bacteria sensing

Last year, scientists at TU Delft achieved a remarkable feat by using graphene to capture the sound of an individual bacterium. In order to improve these kind of 2D ultra-sensitive sensors, the nanomechanics of this material have to be studied in more detail. Farbod Alijani, associate professor at the faculty of Mechanical, Maritime and Material Engineering, received an ERC Consolidator Grant for this project.
