Marrying Photonics, Materials Science, Microsystem Technology and Life Science - a Perspective from 15 years of Research in Uppsala
KTH Applied Physics seminars
Thursday 05 December 2013
to 11:00 at
Associate Professor Fredrik Nikolajeff (Ångström Laboratory Uppsala University)
In this talk I will make a condensed summary of some research projects we have been involved in over the years by starting out from the component level with diffractive optical elements (DOEs), over to micromachining techniques and replication in polymer materials, describe a few attempts for assembly of microsystems targeted for lab-on-a-chip applications, and finally move into where we stand today - photonics for the life sciences. This talk will include topics such as micro-optics, microfluidics, nanocrystalline diamond, quantum cascade lasers, biomarkers and Alzheimer's disease.
