  • Femtosecond cellular transfection using novel laser beam geometries 

    Tsampoula, Xanthi (University of St Andrews, 2009-11-30) - Thesis
    In this thesis, femtosecond (fs) cellular transfection of Chinese Hamster Ovary (CHO) cells was performed using a tightly focused Gaussian beam. The beam focus was positioned on the cell membrane and three laser doses, ...
  • Optical micromanipulation using ultrashort pulsed laser sources 

    Little, Helen (University of St Andrews, 2007-06-19) - Thesis
    In this thesis two previously separate fields of study are brought together: optical micromanipulation and ultrashort laser research. Here, the benefits of combining the high peak powers of ultrashort pulsed lasers and ...
  • Optical sorting and photo-transfection of mammalian cells 

    Mthunzi, Patience (University of St Andrews, 2010-11-30) - Thesis
    Recently, laser light sources of different regimes have emerged as an essential tool in the biophotonics research area. Classic applications include, for example: manipulating single cells and their subcellular organelles, ...
  • 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 ...
  • Sintering of calcium phosphates with a femtosecond pulsed laser for hard tissue engineering 

    Anastasiou, A. D.; Thomson, Caroline Louise; Hussain, Syed Asad; Edwards, Tom J.; Strafford, S.; Malinowski, M.; Mathieson, R.; Brown, C. Tom A.; Brown, A. P.; Duggal, M. S.; Jha, A. (2016-07-05) - Journal article
    Direct laser sintering on hard tissues is likely to open new pathways for personalised medicine. To minimise irradiation damage of the surrounding soft tissues, lasers operating at wavelengths that are ‘safe’ for the tissues ...
  • Yb-doped femtosecond lasers and their frequency doubling 

    Sarmani, Abdul Rahman (University of St Andrews, 2008) - Thesis
    Ultralow threshold, compact and highly efficient femtosecond lasers based on Yb³⁺-doped potassium yttrium tungstate (Yb:KYW) and Yb³⁺-doped vanadium yttrium oxide (Yb:YVO 4 ) have been demonstrated within this PhD-research ...
