HISTORY & GALLERY
Welcome to the Optical Nanomanipulation Lab developed by Dr. J. R. Arias-González, now at the Universitat Politècnica de Valencia (Spain).
Our research focuses on Molecular Biophysics and biocompatible nano-systems, with a strong bond to both Mesoscopic Physics and Biological Chemistry. We use theory and experiments based on the manipulation of single molecules.
The phenomena inside a cell happen molecule by molecule. Nucleic acids, as the software, and proteins, as the hardware, comprise a stochastic but coordinated and precise set of macromolecules that are accessible to optical trapping techniques.
