The Ploetz group investigates transport phenomena in systems at the interface of biological and porous materials by correlating linear and non-linear optical microscopy with state-of-the art spectroscopy.
Our current projects focus on
(1) the development of novel micro-spectroscopy methods for studying dynamic processes.
(2) uptake studies of metal-organic framework nanoparticles in living cells.
(3) transport processes of small molecules in porous materials.
