  • Integrated holographic system for all-optical manipulation of developing embryos 

    Torres, Maria Leilani; Antkowiak, Maciej; Cizmarova, Hana; Ferrier, David Ellard Keith; Dholakia, Kishan; Gunn-Moore, Frank J (2011-06-01) - Journal article
    We demonstrate a system for the combined optical injection and trapping of developing embryos. A Ti:sapphire femtosecond laser in tandem with a spatial light modulator, is used to perform fast and accurate beam-steering ...
  • Nonlinear frequency conversion in isotropic semiconductor waveguides 

    Moutzouris, Konstantinos (University of St Andrews, 2003) - Thesis
    This thesis describes an experimental investigation of optical frequency conversion in isotropic semiconductor waveguides by use of several phase-matching approaches. Efficient, type I second harmonic generation of ...
  • Photoporation and optical manipulation of plant and mammalian cells 

    Mitchell, Claire A. (University of St Andrews, 2015-06-24) - Thesis
    Optical cell manipulation allows precise and non-invasive exploration of mammalian cell function and physiology for medical applications. Plants, however, represent a vital component of the Earth’s ecosystem and the knowledge ...
