Research Goals

The Ramsey Group is interested in utilizing micro- and nanofabrication strategies to create devices that facilitate our abilities to gather chemical and biochemical information. Our motivations for fabricating devices include clinical diagnostics, high-throughput biochemical experimentation, understanding of transport mechanisms in nanoscale-confined spaces, and development of portable mass spectrometers operating at high-pressures (> 1 Torr). The devices that we develop have application to drug discovery, health care, environmental monitoring, chemical process control, and high-throughput laboratory analysis and basic research.
