The BioPhotonics group conducts its research activity at the interface between Photonics and Biochemical/Biomedical applications. It focuses on optical systems such as: Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT), Fluorescence microscopy, optical tweezers, plasmonics imaging.
We closely collaborates with biologists, biochemists, chemists and hospital doctors in applications such as ophthalmology, ribosome study, optical biochips.
Our goal is to "advance the frontiers" of photonic characterization system in relationship with real biochemical issues.
The BioPhotonics group, consisting of about a dozen scientists,currently organized into three teams: "Bio-Imaging" (PI Arnaud Dubois), "Single Molecule Biophysics" (PI Nathalie Westbrook) and "Bio-Plasmonics" (PI Michael Canva ).
