Workshop Information

Monday 22nd March, 8:30 – 13:00 GMT

Structured light, with full control over the intensity, polarization and phase, has led to remarkable advances in biomedical imaging and measurement, such as super-resolution through structured illumination microscopy or stimulated-emission depletion, multi-plane holographic imaging, and optical manipulation of single cells and DNA molecules. In the last decade, metasurfaces have begun to replace conventional bulky optical components with ultrathin, flat optical components. Recently, metasurface-empowered novel bioimaging and measurement tools have emerged in areas including endoscopic optical coherence tomography, fluorescent imaging, and super-resolution imaging.

Join us for a half-day workshop discussing recent trends in the use of shaped light for biomedical imaging and measurement. The meeting will be held online and is free for all participants. To receive the Zoom link, register using your institutional email address below.
