A trip on the light fantastic? Photonics for the life sciences.

Prof Kishan Dholakia

School of Physics and Astronomy, University of St Andrews

3:30pm Thursday 21st April, Virtual Reality Theatre, 4th Floor, Applied Sciences Building

Optical techniques in micromanipulation and biophotonics have come to the fore in recent years. In this seminar I will give describe current areas of work in this field including near field micromanipulation, microfluidics, optical sorting of cells and transfection of cells using light. I will emphasise the use of novel light modes for this work.
