Hybrid bionanomaterials: Plasma-modified nanofibrils as electrodes and affinity materials

Amyloid fibrils are promising nanomaterials in the field of nanoelectronics, biosensorics and purification technologies. Including molecular dynamic modelling on the computer, application-oriented basic investigations on the formation and association of nanofibrils on surfaces, their switching and modification with radiation-chemical methods are carried out.
