[软物质物理重点实验室系列学术报告（109）] Small lasers embedded inside live human cells and biological tissue
||Dr. Matjaz Humar
摘要: Micro-sized lasers completely embedded within single live cells and biological tissues have been demonstrated. This includes the first laser inside a live cell. The lasers inside cells can act as very sensitive sensors, enabling us to better understand cellular processes. Each laser within a cell emits light with a slightly different fingerprint that can be used as a barcode to tag the cell. Up to a trillion cells (1,000,000,000,000) could be uniquely tagged. We have also realized that fat cells already contain lipid droplets that can work as natural lasers. Small lasers embedded in the sample can be used for novel nonlinear microscopy, including super resolution imaging. We have also embedded lasers into skin, which may enable new diagnostic, treatment and imaging tools in medicine and biology.
报告人简介: Dr. Matjaž Humar is a researcher at J. Stefan Institute in Slovenia and leader of Laboratory for Bio-integrated photonics. He has been working for three years as a Marie-Curie fellow at Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, USA. Humar is the co-inventor of world’s first 3D laser and first laser inside a live human cell. He is the first author of two Nature Photonics papers, both including the cover and one Nature Biomedical Engineering paper.
