  5. Fields and Optics Seminar featuring Prof. Allen L. Garner

    Electromagnetic Actuation for Biology Electromagnetism is a well-established phenomenon for sensors; however, one may also use intense electromagnetic radiation, such as pulsed power, plasmas, or lasers, to induce changes in cellular function.  Recent investigations have focused on utilizing these technologies to induce multiscale changes in biological specimens for applications ranging from drug delivery to wound treatment.  The most common and mature example is electroporation,...

  6. Prof. Mark I. Stockman OSA Purdue Student Chapter Seminar

    Spaserin Quantum Regime Nanoplasmonicsdeals with collective electron dynamics on the surface of metal nanostructures, which arises due to excitations called surface plasmons. Nanoplasmonicshas numerous applications in science, technology, biomedicine, environmental monitoring, and defense. Until recently, all the effects, elements, and devices in nanoplasmonicshave been passive: they use external optical energy, always losing a fraction of it to heat and leakage radiation. An active device...
