Researchers develop instrument capable of detecting individual nanoparticles

Precision measurement in the world of nanoparticles has now become a possibility, thanks to UCSB scientists. Researchers have developed a new instrument capable of detecting individual nanoparticles with diameters as small as a few tens of nanometers. The instrument was developed in the lab of Andrew Cleland, in collaboration with the group of Erkki Ruoslahti, Distinguished Professor, Sanford-Burnham Medical Research Institute at UCSB. Jean-Luc Fraikin, a postdoctoral researcher at UCSB is the first author on the study.
