Adrian Dinescu, CS3, Microphysics Characterization Laboratory,
PhD student at the Bucharest University Faculty of Physics, thesis
title: “Electron beam lithography applied in the realization of
nanostructured devices”, Romanian scientific responsible of the
project: FP7- STREP- CATHERINE- “Carbon nAnotube Technology for
High-speed nExt-geneRation nano-InterconNEcts”. Contribution during
the project: Development of AFM electronics for using alternative
operating modes (tapping, phase imaging); Fabrication of force
microsensors for AFM; Scanning electron microscopy (SEM); Electron
beam lithography - EBL.
Roxana Vasilco, CS3, First biologist, genetic molecular
specialization (master’s degree equivalent).
Contribution during the project: realization of the molecular biology
models; integration of the theoretical models with numerical
simulation results; Realization of the models regarding the dynamic
properties of biomolecules.
Adina Bragaru is a PhD student at UB, Faculty of Chemistry:
Thesis title: ”Chemical modified nanostructured surfaces and their
applications”; Contribution during the project: functionalization of
nanostructured silicon substrates, evaluation of the performances of
the lab-on-a-chip test devices using the GeneTAC UC4 Microarray
Scanner, which can scan using two wavelengths (532nm, 635nm), then the
signal is analyzed with the GeneTAC Integrator software; it will
analyze statistically, qualitatively and quantitatively the obtained
data, by using the incorporated database for genetic determination.
Surface functionalisation will be done by several methods, depending
on the physical, chemical, mechanic, adhesion properties but also
depending on hydrophobicity and hydofility of the surface and the
properties of the molecules which will be selected in order to fix
them on the nanostructured substrate.
Andrei Avram, graduate of the Faculty of Physics (2007), PhD
student at UPB (prof. dr. ing. Horia Gavrila), thesis title: “Research
and modeling of some magnetic nanotransporters for the treatment of
malignant afflictions by hypothermia”. Contribution during the
project: modeling of the magnetic nanotransporters for biomedical
applications; design, simulation and optimization of the parameters of
microfluidic dielectro-magnetophoretic separation system and study of
non-Newtonian fluid flow through these microsystems; study of the Si,
glass, photosensitive polymers, elastomers surface modification by
bombardment with reactive ions from O2, Ar, CF4, SF6 plasma.
