Biophotonics is an ambitious, multidisciplinary research area that utilizes light-based technologies in medicine and life sciences. The term derives from two words of Greek origin: ‘bios’ means life and ‘phos’ light. Biophotonics refers to the interplay between light and biological matter.
has developed expertise in designing, modelling, prototyping and demonstrating low-cost manufacturable photonics-based systems for various biophotonic applications including:
- Laser-induced fluorescence and absorbance analysis for chromatographic separations
- Detection of pathogenic microorganisms in drinking water
- Sorting of zebra-fish embryos
