Personal profile

Research areas

Applied research in nanofabrication of functional surfaces; wetting properties for solid surfaces; optical metasurfaces; anti-reflective surfaces; microfluidics; semiconductor physics and technology; electrochemical detection of neurotransmitters (not active); ion-channel recording in biological cells (not active); superconducting quantum transport (not active); low dimensional quantum materials (not active). Experimental methods comprise nanofabrication in cleanroom environments (electron-beam lithography, deep UV lithography, wet and dry etching, thin film deposition), characterization methods (scanning electron microscopy, sensitive electrical measurements, contact angle measurements, optical measurements, atomic force microscopy, XPS, XRD, and optical interference microscopy), two-photon polymerization, fabrication of polymeric microdevices by origination in Si and replication in polymer by injection moulding and roll-to-roll extrusion coating. 


Rafael Taboryski (RT) is full professor at DTU - Technical University of Denmark, National Centre for Nano Fabrication and Characterization (DTU Nanolab), where he heads the nanofabrication research section, and serves as the Head of Studies for DTU's MSc programme in Engineering Physics. RT teaches courses at both BSc and MSc level in physics and nanofabrication. RT graduated in physics from the University of Copenhagen (KU) and acquired his PhD degree in 1992 also from KU. RT’s employment record comprises the University of Cambridge as postdoc, Danish Fundamental Metrology as Staff Scientist and at Sophion Bioscience A/S as Director Consumables Technology. In 2007 RT joined RISØ National Laboratory as senior researcher, and Head of Programme, before joining DTU in 2008. In 2021 RT earned the Doctor Technices degree from DTU with a thesis on "Engineering of Wetting Properties for Solid Surfaces"
