Organisation profile

Organisation profile

The section for Optical Sensing and Imaging Systems develops and applies nanotechnology and photonics-based methods to characterize and manipulate biological systems, with the vision to translate light-based concepts into improved healthcare.

Our research includes:

  • Development and application of hardware for imaging and probing 3D biomimetics
  • Optical coherence tomography and non-linear microscopy for 2D/3D cell cultures and in-vivo imaging of small animals.
  • Micro- and nano-fluidics for manipulation and imaging of biologically relevant particles.
  • Optofluidics and hyperspectral Raman imaging for novel sensor and actuation technology.
  • Thermodynamic modelling of nano-scale physics at room temperature.

UN Sustainable Development Goals

In 2015, UN member states agreed to 17 global Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure prosperity for all. Our work contributes towards the following SDG(s):

  • SDG 3 - Good Health and Well-being
