Integrated photonic structures for high-speed, wide-field and super-resolved microscopy.
Research Area: Super-resolved microscopy enabled by silicon photonics
Main Researcher: Jeremie Wenger
The purpose of this project is to develop integrated photonic structures for upgrading state-of-the-art wide-field microscopes. The two main targets consist to improve the optical resolution and the image acquisition speed of wide-field microscopes in order to image biological dynamic objects at a 100 nm scale. The proposed concept combines properties that are involved in structured illumination microscopy (SIM) and in total internal reflection (TIR) microscopy, namely the implementation of high spatial frequencies, the ability to tune the phase of the exciting beams and a dark-field illumination configuration.
