Chirality is a fundamental property of life, making chiral sensing and analysis crucial to numerous scientific subfields of biology, chemistry, and medicine, and to the pharmaceutical, chemical, cosmetic, and food industries, constituting a market of 10s of billion €, and growing.Despite the tremendous importance of chiral sensing, its application remains very limited, as chiroptical signals are t ...

In the ASPIRE project, whose academic and industrial beneficiaries are world leading in their complementary fields of expertise, the overarching research goal is the measurement of photoelectron angular distributions (PADs) in the “molecular frame” (MF) of systems of biological relevance. These MF-PADs can be interpreted as electron diffraction patterns, achieved by “illuminating the molecule from ...

Pulsed valves: Fast Forward (PUFF)

Start date: Jan 1, 2015, End date: Dec 31, 2018,

Small miracles occur in the ‘puff’ of gas emitted by a modern pulsed valve. Broad thermal velocity distributions are converted into a mono-velocity uni-directional supersonic jet and the numerous rotational states of the molecules in the jet are frozen down to their lowest level; all of this taking place in a very modest vacuum apparatus. Pulsed valves have revolutionized molecular dynamics and ma ...

Femtosecond Light Amplifiers in the Megahertz regime (FLAME)

Start date: Oct 1, 2012, End date: Mar 31, 2015,

FLAME will leverage a current revolution in ultrafast laser science and lead to the commercial availability of amplified laser systems with significantly higher pulse repetition rates, higher average powers and shorter pulse durations than has been possible up to now. In addition, the project will develop sophisticated ion and electron imaging detectors tailored to the experimental research carrie ...

Listeria mococytogenes is one of the most important food-borne pathogenic bacteria, having “zero tolerance” in ready-to-eat and dairy foods. Currently, a novel system for monitoring the contamination levels in industrial food producing plants in a more fast, safe and efficient manner than current tools is being developed in the framework of the BioliSME project (Project No: 232037). Although the p ...

The FORTH’s team has recently demonstrated an extremely fast and sensitive ellipsometer, based on the amplification of the ellipsometric angle by multiple reflective passes (at least 100 and as many as a million) at the interface in question. It is able to make senstive measurements on timescales as fast as microseconds (at least), with applications including biosensing, microelectronics, and surf ...

Pathogenic bacteria are the origin of 90% of reported food-borne illnesses. Listeria monocytogenes is one of the most important, having “zero tolerance” in ready-to-eat and dairy foods. This bacterium has become a worldwide concern since it causes listeriosis, an infection which can kill vulnerable people such as the elderly, pregnant women and people suffering from immuno-compromising diseases.Mo ...
