Optical nanometry

Optical nanometry is a new technology based on the laser trapping techniques, which has important applications in studying single molecule dynamics. In this project, the candidate is expected to build and characterize a novel optical nanometry system, which is not only capable of measuring ultraweak force, but also can be used to measure ultraweak torque. This project will make significant contribution to the fields of optical trapping, single molecule dynamics and in a more general sense to cutting-edge nanotechnology.
