Supramolecular NanoMaterials and Interfaces Laboratory (SuNMIL) is located in Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), a federal university in Switzerland.
The laboratory, led by Professor Francesco Stellacci, consists of around 15 members at senior scientist, post-doctoral, and PhD level. Two thirds of the laboratory work is around gold nanoparticles synthesis, characterisation, and application. The main group expertise lies in the characterisation of the nanoparticles ligand shell. Dr. Quy Khac Ong is a post-doc at SuNMIL, he is the leading expert in scanning probe microscopy characterisation of ligand coated gold nanoparticles.
Dr. Samuel Jones is a post-doc at SuNMIL with extensive expertise in nanoparticle characterisation. Within the Nanofacturing project SuNMIL will lead work that is dedicated to the physical characterisation of nanoparticles suspensions.
