Stephen Arnold, Director, MicroParticle PhotoPhysics Laboratory for BioPhotonics
The MicroParticle PhotoPhysics Lab is involved in inventing cutting-edge photonic techniques for detecting individual virus particles. It has recently detected single Influenza A virus in-vitro and is pushing its patented Whispering Gallery Mode Biosensor to higher sensitivity in order to detect single HIV virions. By mentoring students from physics, chemistry, chemical engineering, and electrical engineering departments, its interdisciplinary fusion forms a unique platform attacking current technological challenges.
