Research Categories: Nanophysics and Biophysics

Current projects: Electronic transport in carbon nanotubes and graphene;, Inorganic nanostructures based on self-assembled DNA scaffolds;, Low-temperature scanning microscopy (AFM);, New probes for intracellular neuronal recordings., Ultra-sharp probes for Intracellular Neuronal Recordings.

Research Description: Gleb Finkelstein is an experimental physicist interested in inorganic and biologically inspired nanostructures: carbon nanotubes, graphene, nanocrystals and self-assembled DNA 'origami'. These objects reveal a variety of interesting electronic properties that may become a basis for future devices and sensors. His group's research is evenly divided between studies of electronic properties of nanostructures, and DNA self-assembly. Recently, he started a collaborative project on developing novel probes for intracellular neural recording.
