Optics in the living world: from imaging to mimicking

Seminar on optics in the living world - Come and learn how optical devices can mimick nature or help image the living world at molecular level

‘Biological systems use nano-scale architectures to produce striking optical effects: they are increasingly offering inspiration and design protocols for applied photonic technologies.

But how can we capture images of the living world without affecting it? New techniques of optical microscopy are being used that produce real time 3D images of cells and tissues at a molecular level, without any labelling or staining.

Come and discover how nature’s ingenuity could be used for technological applications… including make-up!
