Quantum technology for applications in chemistry

Several open interdisciplinary master thesis in the group of Dr. D. Buchner


Several open interdisciplinary master theses:

Quantum technology for applications in chemistry

What do you think diamonds are good for? No, not only for jewelry - they can be used as quantum sensors for detecting NMR (nuclear magnetic resonance) signals from tiny volumes down to a single molecule! This revolutionary technology shall be used here to analyze molecular structures at surfaces – from heterogenous catalysis to membrane biochemistry. Interested to work in a new and young group with a highly interdisciplinary environment? Do you have experience in synthetic chemistry, biochemistry or microfluidics and want to learn cutting-edge technologies? Contact bucher.dominik@gmx.de and dominik.bucher@cfa.harvard.edu

 

Thesis 1: Anchoring molecules to diamond surfaces

Tasks:

  • Learn about how diamonds can be used as NMR sensors
  • Develop diamond surface chemistry which allows to tether molecules to surfaces

Skills: Basic knowledge and practical skills in synthetic chemistry.

 

Thesis 2: Preparing lipid bilayers on diamond surfaces

Tasks:

  • Learn about how diamonds can be used as NMR sensors
  • Develop a protocol to prepare lipid bilayers on diamond surfaces

Skills: Ideally some experience with lipid bilayers.

 

Thesis 3: 3D-printed microfluidics on diamonds

(in collaboration with Prof. Wolfrum Neuroelectronics)

Tasks:

  • Learn about how 3D printing works and how diamonds can be used as NMR sensors
  • Develop a method to use 3D printing to manufacture microfluidic channels on a diamond

Skills: Ideally some experience in microfluidics or 3D printing.
