Labs and Groups
Institute for Engineered Interfaces Laboratories
The new Institute for Engineered Interfaces (IEI) Laboratories will promote a cross-disciplinary approach to research. Faculty members from the NYU Tandon School of Engineering, the Center of Soft Matter Physics, the molecular Design Institute, as well as the medical and dental schools, work together in the IEI on joint projects focusing on colloids and membranes, sensors and diagnostics, and organic/inorganic interfaces.
MicroParticle PhotoPhysics Laboratory for BioPhotonics
We are involved in inventing cutting-edge photonic techniques for detecting individual virus particles. We 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.
Pine Research Group
We study the physics of soft mesoscopic materials, sometimes known as complex fluids. We investigate colloids, emulsions, polymers, surfactant solutions, non-Brownian suspensions, gels...
