[Illinois] ECE 416 Fluorescence I
10 Apr 2013 | | Contributor(s):: Brian Cunningham
In this lecture, we discussed Fluorescence molecules and how they can be used for detection of other molecules. The molecules are considered to have high energy states, which helps them with their detection. The photons discussed...
[Illinois] ECE 416 Fluorescence II
In this lecture, we start with a revision of the common organic dyes and the photostability and quenching concepts. Quenching is then discussed in more detail and the difference between self-quenching and external quenching....
[Illinois] ECE 416 Impedance Based Sensors II
In this lecture, we start off with a light review of the nanopore sequencing method which is based upon having a carefully bioengineered pore that can induce different changes in charge blockages as different base pairs go through...
[Illinois] ECE 416 Lumerical Optical Simulation
In this lecture, we looked at lumerical optical simulation. The motivation to pursue this topic is because there is now software available that allows us to conduct simulations to visualize Electromagnetic field locations, to...
