Intracellular lasers: Coupling of optical resonances with biological processes

Project description

Intracellular lasers as a new tool to study single cells

Currently, fluorescent probes are the tools of choice in live cell studies despite some obvious disadvantages like photo-bleaching, potential toxicity and broad emission spectrum limiting their sensitivity. Recently, micro-sized lasers were integrated into biological objects like individual cells enabling registration of laser emission instead of fluorescence. This EU-funded project aims to develop intracellular micro lasers as a tool to study cell dynamics, biophysics and biochemistry at the single cell level. Since spectral characteristics of laser emission are stable while traveling through the environment, intracellular lasers might enable localisation and analysis of cells embedded deep inside the tissue-of-interest.
