Levitated Optomechanics Incubator Part 2
Day one continued…
To round out the earlier post, the final session from day 1 focussed on novel levitated systems. One of the hot developments in optomechanics is the coupling of atomic spin to mechanical motion, and Levi Neukirch from the University of Rochester...

- What are the barriers for super-resolution at depth?
- What are the fundamental limits in fibre imaging (resolution, correction, speed)?
- What are the challenges of using structured illumination for in vivo imaging?
These are just a few of the questions that were explored at last week’s ...

The second half of the Optical Biosensors Incubator deviated somewhat from the highly technical nature of the prior discussions. While several members did discuss progress in various scientific efforts, focus shifted to the broader topic of bringing biosensing technologies to market, and several discussions challenged all those in attendance to think critically on how the status quo relates to...
