The main objective of this project was the development of new MDs. This major objective was based on the realization of supporting technological advancements and computational progress. It was based also on suggestions obtained from a biological analysis.

The plan:

FOCUS will build a novel generation of biologically inspired molecular devices (MDs) based on the developments of new photonic tools. These photonic tools will use Plasmon Polariton and two-photon technology, enabling focused light spots with a diameter around 10 nm.
FOCUS will also develop new light sensitive molecules that will be selectively activated by our new photonic tools. These new technological innovations will provide a way to control activation of single light sensitive molecules and will allow the investigation of molecular computation in a biological environment and with an unprecedented resolution.
