In situ Nanoscale Investigation of Microbial Extracellular Electron Transfer

Why:

Extracellular electron transfer provides exchange of information and energy of a microorganism with external environment.

How:

The project is to combine electrochemistry with microscopic technology to probe in situ nanoscale bacterial and biofilm.

What:

The results offer new knowledge for development of microbe fuel cells and  biological wastewater treatment.
