Engineering Soft Matter: Molecular Lipid Films

Prof. Aldo Jesorka


Chalmers University of Technology, Göteborg, Sweden
   






Molecular lipid films are a sub-class of soft matter that consist of self-assembled lipid molecules, constituting two-dimensional fluid membranes with high lateral order and nanometer thickness on a large variety of solid surfaces. Depending on the substrate properties, and the composition of the deposited lipid mixture, monolayers, bilayers or multiple bilayers can be created on demand. In my presentation I report on new approaches to the engineering and characterization of molecular phospholipid films on solid flat, micro- or nanostructured supports, including the “Laboratory on a Biomembrane” for rapid prototyping, and introduce modern techniques of modeling fractures in such membranes.

Brief Bio:

Aldo Jesorka is Biträdande Professor in Biophysical Chemistry at Chalmers University of Technology, Göteborg, Sweden. He performed his undergraduate chemistry studies at the University of Leipzig between 1989-93, and at the University of Florida at Gainesville, where he worked with Alan Katritzky from 1993-94. After doctoral studies at the Max-Planck-Institute for Radiation Chemistry in Mülheim/R, Germany, he received a Dr. rer. nat. degree from the University of Düsseldorf, Germany, in 2000. Following a brief postdoctoral fellowship at Arizona State University 2000-2001, he joined Chalmers in 2002, where he became associate professor in 2008, and Biträdande Professor in 2015. He is currently the head of the Biophysical Technology Laboratory, a research facility that bridges chemistry, physics and microtechnology at Chalmers. His areas of interest are integrative micro-and nanoscience, with a specialization in lifescience technology.
