In situ Nanoscale Investigation of Microbial Extracellular Electron Transfer


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


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


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