Resolving molecule information in dynamic lipid membrane with metasurfaces

(Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne) Researchers at EPFL (Switzerland) and their colleagues from the USA introduce a mid-infrared biosensor based on a novel multi-resonant metasurface, which, for the first time, is able to distinguish multiple analytes in heterogeneous biological samples non-destructively, in real-time and with high sensitivity.
