    • Advanced light-sheet and structured illumination microscopy techniques for neuroscience and disease diagnosis 

      Nylk, Jonathan (University of St Andrews, 2016-11-30) - Thesis
      Optical microscopy is a cornerstone of biomedical research. Advances in optical techniques enable specific, high resolution, sterile, and biologically compatible imaging. In particular, beam shaping has been used to tailor ...
    • Advanced multimodal methods in biomedicine : Raman spectroscopy and digital holographic microscopy 

      McReynolds, Naomi (University of St Andrews, 2017-12-07) - Thesis
      Moving towards label-free technologies is essential for many clinical and research applications. Raman spectroscopy is a powerful tool in the field of biomedicine for label-free cell characterisation and disease diagnosis, ...
    • Construction of an internally B3N3-doped nanographene molecule 

      Krieg , Matthias; Reicherter, Florian; Haiss , Peter; Ströbele , Markus; Eichele , Klaus; Treanor, Michael John; Schaub, Renald; Bettinger , Holger F. (2015-07-06) - Journal article
      The synthesis of a hexa-peri-hexabenzocoronene (HBC) with a central borazine core is described. The solid state structure of this BN doped HBC (BN-HBC) is isotypic with that of parent HBC. Scanning tunneling microscopy ...
    • Exploiting multimode waveguides for pure fibre based fluorescence imaging 

      Cizmar, Tomas; Dholakia, Kishan (SPIE, 2013-03-22) - Conference item
      There has been an immense drive in modern microscopy towards miniaturisation and fibre based technology. This has been necessitated by the need to access hostile or difficult environments particularly in-situ and in-vivo. ...
    • Fibre-based imaging : new challenges 

      Plöschner, M.; Straka, B.; Dholakia, K.; Cizmar, T. (SPIE, 2015-03-10) - Conference item
      A novel minimally invasive micro-endoscopes utilizing disordered light within a standard multimode optical fibre have been introduced recently. The two most important limitations of this exciting technology are (i) the ...
    • Optical eigenmodes for illumination & imaging 

      Kosmeier, Sebastian (University of St Andrews, 2013-06-26) - Thesis
      This thesis exploits so called “Optical Eigenmodes” (OEi) in the focal plane of an optical system. The concept of OEi is introduced and the OEi operator approach is outlined, for which quadratic measures of the light field ...
    • Optical techniques for the investigation of a mechanical role for FRMD6/Willin in the Hippo signalling pathway 

      Goff, Frances (University of St Andrews, 2019-06-24) - Thesis
      The mammalian hippo signalling pathway controls cell proliferation and apoptosis via transcriptional co-activators YAP and TAZ, and as such is a key regulator of organ and tissue growth. Multiple cellular components ...
