Congratulations to Laura O’Donnell

Congratulations go out to all our new graduates, especially to Laura O’Donnell BSc who was awarded the prize for the best BSc physics final year project.

Laura’s project in the Optical Manipulation Group was supervised by Prof. Kishan Dholakia and Dr Graham Bruce (pictured).

Her project was focused on “Multiple wavelength measurements with a speckle-based wavemeter” and builds on our previous work on sub-femtometre resolved speckle-based wavemeters.

Research on advanced imaging featured in The Conversation

Our recent publication “Light-sheet microscopy with attenuation-compensated propagation-invariant beams” has been highlighted in The Conversation.

Dr Jonathan Nylk, the lead author of the study, was invited to write the article which gives an overview of light-sheet microscopy and an introduction the use of structured photonics in this area.
