High performance miniaturized photonic devices for biomedical, agricultural, and environmental applications

Home > News > High performance miniaturized photonic devices for biomedical, agricultural, and environmental applications

Developments in nanotechnology, electronics, computing, algorithms, imaging, and fabrication technologies are assisting us in miniaturizing optical/photonic devices to become portable and suitable for point of care and field applications.

The first guest of Nano Open in the new period will be Prof. Ibrahim Abdulhalim. During the last 10 years he has been working on different technologies for this purpose including full field optical coherence tomography, plasmonic sensors, and spectral/polarization control liquid crystal devices.

In this webinar he will review their miniaturized devices developed for these purposes including spectro-polarimetric imaging module based on unique liquid crystal devices demonstrated for skin cancer detection, plasmonic sensor with less than 1kg weight and small form factor demonstrated for detecting biomarkers, viruses, bacteria and other analytes, SERS sensors with ultrahigh enhancement, and more.

Nano Open Webinar will be held in a hybrid way at 11:00 on December 21, 2022. To register for the webinar otolab.sabanciuniv.edu
