The Molecular Nanotechnology Laboratory (L9) was established in 2008. The research team has an interdisciplinary potential and it is strongly committed to delivering research, development and innovation solutions for partners.


Head of laboratory —Dr. Radu Cristian Popa ([email protected])

Radu Cristian Popa received a MSc in Electrical Engineering (Applied Electronics) from the Polytechnic University of Bucharest (1989), and a PhD in Quantum Engineering and Systems Science at University of Tokyo (1998).

He was assistant professor in Electrical Engineering at the Polytechnic University of Bucharest (1991- 2001), and Senior Researcher at the Science Solutions Intn. Lab., Inc., Tokyo (1998-2003), where he conducted industrial research projects, mainly in numerical modeling and analysis of complex phenomena and devices. 2003-2006, he was invited researcher at the University of Tuebingen, Germany and then became Development Director at Neurostar, GmbH, Germany, designing and developing hardware and software solutions for functional neurosurgery and neuroscience systems related to brain microelectrode exploration and recording, and medical imaging. Radu Popa joined IMT Bucharest in 2007 and is presently director of the Center for Integrated Systems Nanotechnologies And Carbon Based Nanomaterials, that is currently under development at IMT-Bucharest. Main scientific interests include electronic transport analysis and sensing solutions for single-molecule identification.
