Research Credo
To study the most novel,  needed, but not very explored areas. This is an exciting but challenging way. Think about it if you decide to join our group.
This is about  investigation of unknown.

Research Interests:

    • Physics of cancer, aging.
    • Nanomaterials.
    • Novel methods of material characterization.
    • Sustainability.

Condensed Matter in General (Hard and Soft):

Soft Condensed Matter and Bio-medical research:

Biological Physics is the study of biological processes/systems through the application of AFM and photonics, seeking quantitative information at the molecular, cellular, organismal, and systems level.

Energy-related materials/Sustainability:

 Surface Science and Engineering:

Translational Research:

  • Novel Ringing mode of Atomic Force Microscopy (patented, commercialized).
  • Ultra-brigtht fluorescent silica particles for labeling, tracing, detection (patented and patent-pending technology; in the precess of commercializing).
  • AFM-based multi-frequency nanoindenter(patented, commercialized)
  • Polishing of Dental surfaces: creation of polishing slurries/pastes to polish tooth down to molecular smoothness. This prevents bad bacteria from forming long-lasting films, and consequent caries (patented).
  • Physical methods of identification of cancer cells for early detection of  cancer (patented).
  • Nano-stethoscope project (feasibility project).
  • Nanoporous silica for filtration (patent pending). 

Favorite techniques:

  • Variations of Scanning Probe Microscopy (SPM, AFM) for nanoscale materials property measurements and mapping.
  • Confocal combinations with AFM and Raman spectroscopy.
  • Various other microscopy.
