Welcome to MOPTOPus

The physical and electrical connection of nanoscale functional materials to devices with dimensions several orders of magnitude larger impacts the nanomaterials’ structural and thus optoelectronic properties. A contactless approach to their optoelectronic manipulation at length scales relevant to critical properties will open a manifold of new possibilities for their investigation and application. Within MOPOTPus, we aim to implement a novel, contactless nano-manipulator of several nanometers controlled purely by light.
