Imaging in Biology and Biomedicine (Prof.Steven Chu)

  • Special Colloquium
  • Date: Jun 20, 2018
  • Time: 14:30 - 15:30
  • Speaker: Prof. Steven Chu
  • Stanford University
  • Room: New Lecture Hall, Room B 0.32
  • Host: MPQ
In recent years, new imaging probes such as green fluorescent proteins, optical tweezers, single molecule FRET and super-resolution microscopy are having a profound impact on biological sciences.

I will discuss our development of significantly improved, photostable rare earth nanoparticles that allow the long-term, real time tracking of proteins in live cells with millisecond time resolution and the tracking of cells in live animals. These particles have also been used in combined SEM-cathodoluminescence nanoscale imaging. Also, recent results that have speckle-free linear and non-linear ultrasound imaging that achieves the diffraction limit will be presented.
