Biological and Bioinspired Nanostructured Materials: Basic Physics and Applications

This video was recorded at Kolokviji na Institutu "Jožef Stefan". Elementary biological units such as proteins and peptides self-assemble into natural biological nanostructures such as protein fibers and amyloid fibrils (AF). Another class of nanomaterials is man-made bioinspired materials, which are composed from chemically synthesized biomolecules and can self assemble into nanotubes (PNT), nanospheres, hydrogels, etc. AF and PNT are supramolecular ensembles, which are built-up from crystallized subunits highly ordered at the nanoscale and possessing unique intrinsic physical properties, such as quantum confined phenomena or asymmetric space structure and polar dielectric properties. The Lecture will be focused on basic physical properties of biological and bioinspired nanostructures,... Show More
