Talk @UFRJ, Leonardo Menezes, Monday 12/03, 15H30

The Quantum Optics and Information Group (UFRJ) is proud to announce next week’s seminar, which will be given by Leonardo Menezes (UFPE). We invite all to come!

See the details of the talk below:

MONDAY, March 12th, at 15H30
in room 343 (3rd floor of block A of the Technology Center building)

“Optical microscopy of single nanoobjects using iScat – Interferometric Scattering”
Leonardo Menezes (UFPE)

In this talk, I’ll present the principles of the interferometric scattering (iScat) technique, which allows performing microscopy and spectroscopy of various nanoscopic systems in the diffraction limited regime. Then I’ll discuss applications of iScat in different situations, like detecting single molecule absorption, tracking the diffusion of a virion on a lipidic membrane and 3D tracking of single gold nanoparticles trapped in an electric potential.
