    Experiment Description

    Research Overview

    • Production of Two Dimensional NanoTemplate in Microgravity (2D-NanoTemplate) fabricates large and highly oriented nano-scale two-dimensional arranged peptide arrays by suppressing convection, sedimentation, and buoyancy.


    • The arrangement generated will be used as the template of electronic materials on Earth.
