Physics Seminar

Micro-Interferometers meet Molecular Machines: Nano-Biosensing with Optical Microcavities

Speaker: Prof Frank Vollmer (University of Exeter)
Date: Wednesday 7 October 2020
Time: 15:00
Venue: Zoom

Single-molecule techniques continue to transform imaging, biophysics and, more recently, optical sensing. I will introduce a new class of label-free micro/nano sensors that are starting to emerge and that allow us to observe dynamic processes at the single molecule level directly with light, with unprecedented spatial- and temporal resolution, and without significantly affecting the natural and functional movements of the molecules.
