Advanced optical microscopy techniques for bio-imaging

In addition to a range of X-ray techniques our group is actively involved in developing new optical microscopy methods for bioimaging; optical coherent diffraction techniques for high- resolution, phase sensitive, cellular microscopy. We are also developing new lab-based techniques for characterising the dynamics of single molecules and performing optical analogue experiments of X-ray Free Electron Laser Diffraction experiments.

This research will result in the development of new visible light microscopy techniques for super-resolution phase imaging and for studying the dynamics of molecules.
