CHIRALAB - towards a CHeap and portable InstRument for bioAnaLysis based on enAntiospecific luminescence and aBsorption essays

PRIN [2019-2022]


We shall take advantage of biomolecular homochirality for several separate objectives finally converging in an ambitious goal: to set up a revolutionary prototype instrument for bioanalyses based on chiroptical spectroscopies, employing only modern optoelectronic devices, i.e. avoiding expensive items for producing and detecting circularly polarized (CP) and monochromatic light (sources, polarization modulators, detectors). We constitute a multidisciplinary team with complementary expertise covering synthetic organic and inorganic chemistry, spectroscopy, characterization of molecules and materials and device fabrication and testing.
