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...
