Society presentation discusses bioimaging, uses for bionanotechnology

Plant cells tagged with nanoparticles: The image is of light shining through a plant cell that was marked with a zinc oxide (ZnO) nanoparticle biological marker.  The nanoparticle produces both green light and a secondary purple glow when light shines through the cell.

Arup Neogi, professor of physicsThe American Physical Society features bio-imaging work of Ben Urban, biophysics graduate student under the direction of  Arup Neogi, left, professor of physics.

As of recent years nanotechnology has been at the forefront of scientific research. It promises to have a broad range of applications from turning unhealthy foods into health foods, making computers faster and curing cancer.

Urban and team members in the Neogi Laboratory present results on using nonlinear optical processes of ZnO nano-crystals to detect, track and destroy cells.
