Dip-Pen Nanolithography (DPN) and Related Techniques

The Dip-Pen Nanolithography (DPN) Group at the Institute of Nanotechnology (INT) of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) focuses on the advancement and application of dip-pen nanolithography and related techniques like polymer pen lithography (PPL) for the site-specific chemical and bio-chemical modification of surfaces and devices.
