I will outline the specifications of a portable Biophotonics Workstation
we recently have developed at DTU Fotonik that utilizes high-speed spatial light
modulation to generate an array of currently up to 100 reconfigurable
laser-traps making 3D real-time optical manipulation of biological or micro-fabricated
structures possible with the use of joysticks or gaming devices. The
fabrication of microstructures with nanometer-sized features, for example
a nano-needle, coupled with the real-time user-interactive optical
control allows a user to robotically actuate appended nanostructures
depending on their intended function. These micro-platforms carrying
nanotools are seen to have potential uses in a variety of
micro-biological experiments. Optically actuated nano-needles may be
functionalized or directly used to perforate targeted cells at specific
locations or force the complete separation of dividing cells, among other
functions that can be very useful for the group of microbiologists.
