    Presentation Topics
     • BioPhotonics
    Generating and harnessing light to image and sense; detect and manipulate biological systems.
     • Medical Imaging
    Fluorescent nanomaterials have enormous potential as nanoscale light sources and sensors operating as beacons within biological environments. These are changing the way biological systems can be studied and stretching the fundamental limits of detection.
     • Fibre Sensing
    Advanced optical fibres have the ability to change the way in which light is delivered to / from nano-environments.
