Busy month for Optical Tweezers people

It’s been a busy month so far for our Optical Tweezers & Laser Trapping group, with over 50 research papers brought to the attention of the 500 plus members of the group on LinkedIn.

Meanwhile, it’s day 3 of the Optical Tweezers and Optical Manipulation conference (OTOM XV) taking place during SPIE’s Optics + Photonics conference and exhibition in San Diego.

Sessions and topics covered by leading researchers from around the world during this conference will include: Holography, Statistics, Detectors, Reactive Optical Matter, Optopfluidics, Microheology, Plasmonics, Micro-mechanics and more.

Tomorrow and Wednesday, visit Elliot Scientific at SPIE Astronomical Telescopes + Instrumentation in Edinburgh

sky-night-space-galaxyFor only two days during the prestigious SPIE Astronomical Telescopes + Instrumentation conference in Edinburgh, will developers and users of telescopes and instrumentation be able to visit our stand at the event’s exhibition. Elliot Scientific is featuring products from leading companies such as Energetiq Technology, Gamma ScientificLake Shore Cryotronics and Vescent Photonics.

EQ99XFC_SQFrom tomorrow, our team will be on hand to discuss how the technologies available through Elliot Scientific can help deliver measurement solutions for the problems scientists encounter involving light, magnetic fields, or cryogenic temperatures. We will also be demonstrating two novel light sources – a revolutionary broadband ultra-bright plasma-based lamp and a new tunable LED system that can be programmed to mimic virtually any illuminant or reflected spectrum, plus spectroscopy and laser modules, and more.

The SPIE Astronomical Telescopes + Instrumentation Exhibition take places at the Edinburgh International Conference Centre on Tuesday and Wednesday, June 28th & 29th. For more information, please contact us.

Next week: Optical Trapping and Optical Micromanipulation XI in San Diego

Next week, SPIE Optics + Photonics in San Diego will be hosting a conference stream entitled Optical Trapping and Optical Micromanipulation XI  that runs from Sunday August 17th until the 21st.

There will be twenty sessions in total, chaired by two of the leading researchers in the field and both champions of  Optical Tweezers: Kishan Dholakia of the University of St. Andrews, and Gabriel C. Spalding from the Illinois Wesleyan University. Topics covered will include:

  • Toward (Or In) the Quantum Limit of Opto-Mechanics
  • Beam Shaping and Aberration/Wavefront Correction
  • Helicity and Optical Angular Momentum
  • Optically Driven Microrheology and Mechanical Properties
  • Using the Photonic Toolbox to Study Cells and Their Organelles
  • Enhanced Sensitivity and Resolution of Optical Force Actuators
  • Single-Molecule Manipulation and Study
  • Photonic Devices for Optically Induced Forces
  • Near-Field Micromanipulation, Plasmonic, and Nanoparticle Trapping
  • Studies of Active Swimmers/Hydrodynamics
  • Statistical Mechanics of Small Systems
  • Optical Manipulation of Matter through Gaseous Media
  • Optical Sorting, Optical Lab-on-a-Chip, and Microfluidics
  • Optically Bound Matter
  • Optofluidics and Optically Shaped Structures
  • Optically Manipulated Robotics and Novel Samples

Although Elliot Scientific will not be exhibiting at this event, we would still like to wish all conference attendees a good week.
