Our research intends to advance basic and applied knowledge in Nanotechnology. We develop the following aspects related to biosensors based on nanomechanical systems: advanced instrumentation, novel transduction and actuation methods, theoretical models, biological functionalization of nanomechanical systems and design of novel approaches for nanomechanical sensing. All these tasks are addressed to the advancement of basic knowledge in nanomechanics as well as to the development of ultrasensitive biosensors based on nanomechanical systems and their application in the biomedical field.
