Chair of Materials Science and Nanotechnology - TU Dresden

Max Bergmann Center Our Chair focuses on the multiscaling understanding of complex nanomaterials; from single molecular systems to bottom-up rich aggregates. The convergence of expertise from different disciplines (mostly physics, chemistry and biology) and the adoption of both theoretical and experimental investigation tools provide us with powerful instruments. In this way we can at best explore complex -mostly bioinspired- supramolecular materials from their uni-molecular scale consitutuents till large scale networking.

Prof. Dr. Gianaurelio Cuniberti
Prof. Gianaurelio Cuniberti holds since 2007 the Chair of Materials Science and Nanotechnology at the Dresden University of Technology. He leads the Nanobiomaterials Department of the Max Bergmann Center of Biomaterials Dresden and is the founding director of the Dresden Center for Computational Materials Science (DCCMS). Prof. Cuniberti has made lasting contributions to a wide range of areas from quantum dots, nanowires and nanotubes to biosystems, addressing transport phenomena, structural stability with important contributions to the theory and modeling of the electronic and structural properties of bottom up nanoscale materials. His activity addresses four main lines: (i) molecular and organic electronics, (ii) bionanotechnology, (iii) nanostructures, (iv) methods development. His research activity is internationally recognized in more than 200 scientific papers to date.

Dr. Bergoi Ibarlucea
With the background in biology and after completing a PhD developing optical and electrochemical lab on a chip systems, I am carrying my postdoctoral research at the Chair Materials Science and Nanotechnology with a focus on the electrical, label-free detection using nanowire-based devices. My research interest resides on the surface chemistry and the interaction events between the sensing surface and the environment.
