Superresolved Ultrasensitive Optical Imaging and Spectroscopy

Super-resolution optical microscopy is a  rapidly evolving area of fluorescence microscopy with a tremendous potential  for impacting many fields of science. Several super-resolution methods have  been  developed over the last decade, all capable of overcoming the fundamental  diffraction limit of light. We will present a novel Super-resolution method  that affords a favorable trade-off between  speed and resolution and therefore  is well suited for following cellular processes in live cells.

We will also report  on our efforts to develop quantum-confined Stark effect-based nano-voltage sensors  for all-optical membrane potential recording.

Refreshments will be available before the seminars
