DESCRIPTION

The “Ultrafast Bio- and Nanophotonics” group is devoted to the study of light-matter interactions and its use to develop technologies that impact the societal challenges wellbeing, safe & secure society as well as an urban society.

We are using optical labels to track smart drug delivery systems, and other innovative nanomaterials in interaction with cells and biological tissues using advanced fluorescence and nonlinear spectroscopy e.g. to measure intracellular temperature.

We use and develop new imaging techniques such as super resolution microscopy techniques and light sources, such as quantum and plasmonic LEDs.

Our femtosecond laser sources can be used for lased based micro-nanofabrication, e.g. of photonics crystals or biomimetic models using two photon polymerisation.

Nonlinear imaging modes are developed for deep tissue imaging applications.

A new lab for the study of natural and artificial photonic structures and devices is currently being developed by Martin Lopez-Garcia.

DESCRIPTION

In the nanomedicine research area, the “Ultrafast Bio- and Nanophotonics” group is devoted to the study of smart drug delivery systems and other innovative nanomaterials using advanced fluorescence and nonlinear spectroscopy and using and developing new imaging techniques. Besides using more established super-resolution microscopy techniques one of our main focus is to develop new superresolution techniques.

Our femtosecond laser sources can be used for lased based micro-nanofabrication, e.g. of plasmonic nanostructures or biomimetic models and a multi-photon microscope is developed for the study of nonlinear effects in nanoparticles, as well as, for deep tissue imaging purposes.
