The Bohn group uses the tools of molecular nanotechnology to define the state-of-the-art in chemical analysis of mass-limited samples (ranging from ~106 molecules down to a single molecule). Our research currently focuses on problems in three thematic areas: low-dimensional analytical electronics and photonics, analytical nanofluidics, and correlated imaging, and uses the tools of nanofabrication, high sensitivity molecular spectroscopy, and electrochemistry to achieve our research goals.
