Various topics on Waveguide Evanescent Field Fluorescence and Scattering Microscopy (WEFF and WEFFS microscopy)

Supervisor: Dr. Silvia Mittler

Project Topics:


  1. Automation of set-up (find position of two motors for optimum automated coupling into two waveguide modes) to be able to construct dye distance map time laps "movies".  Application: see living cells advance and repulse from a surface in real time triggered by various biological, physical and chemical stimuli
  2. Introduce WEFF and WEFS microscopy into macrophage and fungi research
  3. Move WEFF and WEFS microscopy into material sciences: from surface corrosion to coating research
