This slideshow is one person's opinion on how this field should move forward.The introduction given a short overview on how...

  6. Nano*High: Nature's Nasty Nanomachines: How Viruses Work, and How We Can Stop Them

    25 Sep 2010 | | Contributor(s):: Carolyn R. Bertozzi

    The birth and growth of nanotechnology is only a few decades old, whereas Nature has been building nano-machines for millennia. Viruses are marvels of natural nano-engineering, but can pose a problem for human health. To combat these nano-machines, scientists are turning to recent developments...

  7. 2010 Nano-Biophotonics Summer School @ UIUC Lecture 2 - 2D/3D Fourier transforms & Electromagnetic fields/ Lorentz-Drude model

    25 Sep 2010 | | Contributor(s):: Gabriel Popescu

    So far, we have discussed Fourier transformations involving one-dimensional functions. Of course, in studying imaging, the conceptmust be generalized to 2D and 3D functions. For example, diffraction and 2D image formation are treated efficiently via 2D Fouriertransforms, while light scattering...

  10. 2010 Nano-Biophotonics Summer School @ UIUC Lecture 4 - Gaussian beam propagation - Elastic light scattering - Dynamic light scattering

    25 Sep 2010 | | Contributor(s):: Gabriel Popescu

    Often, experiments involve light beams. A light beam can be defined as a distribution of field that fulfills the approximation in Eq. 20,i.e. is characterized by a dominant wave vector component, k(z) >> k(x) , k(y) . A beam is, therefore, the spatial equivalent of quasimonochromaticlight, where...

    15 Apr 2010 | | Contributor(s):: Paul R Selvin

    The standard diffraction limit of light is about 250 nm, meaning that you cannot "resolve" objects closer than this distance. Despite this, we have come up with a method to measure individual biomolecules with 1.5 nm spatial localization in x-y plane and 1-500 msec temporal resolution, using a...
