McCoy Lecture: Transforming Light with Metamaterials: A New Paradigm for the Science of Light
15 Feb 2010 | | Contributor(s):: Vladimir M. Shalaev
One of the most unique properties of light is that it can package information into a signal of zero mass and propagate it at the ultimate speed. It is, however, a daunting challenge to bring photonic devices to the nanometer scale because of the fundamental diffraction limit. Metamaterials can...

KIST/PU Multiplex Detection of Cell Surface Markers Using Plasmonic Sensors
out of 5 stars
23 Oct 2007 | | Contributor(s):: Joseph M K Irudayaraj
Gold nanorod molecular probes (GNrMPs) were designed and fabricated for multiplex identification of cell surface markers in HBECs. Cells were probed directly using dark field microscopy integrated with a spectral imager for simultaneous detection of up to three surface markers. The...

Our interdisciplinary research develops and utilizes state-of-the-art optical imaging techniques and nanotechnology to tackle compelling biomedical problems highly related to human health. Research in my group covers diagnosis, treatment, and mechanistic study of diseases.
Conquering Surface Plasmon Resonance Loss in Metallic Nanostructures
16 Oct 2007 | | Contributor(s):: Mikhail A. Noginov
We have observed the compensation of loss in metal by gain indielectric in the mixture of Ag aggregate and rhodamine 6G dye. Thedemonstrated six-fold enhancement of the Rayleigh scattering is the evidence of the enhancement of the localized surface plasmon (SP) resonance. In the attenuated total...
Micro-scaled Biochips with Optically Active Surfaces for Near and Far-field Analysis of Cellular Fluorescence
31 Aug 2007 | | Contributor(s):: Huw Summers
The integration of thin (< 100 nm) metal films with micro-scaleoptical waveguides provides a route to controlled spatialexcitation of cellular fluorescence within a biochip platform.Surface bound electron-plasma oscillations (surface plasmon waves)interact with photons to produce an...
Biosensing applications of Plasmon Resonance in gold nanoparticles
02 Aug 2007 | | Contributor(s):: Karina Moore
Light can be used to excite plasmon resonance in gold nanoparticles. Plasmon resonance occurs on the nanoscale as the particles become excited and plasmon oscillations arise in each particle of a pair of metal nanoparticles. There is plasmon coupling between the neighboring particles as the...
