My interest in Physics enhances me to search out for realities in the Macrocosmos as well as the Microcosmos. I am currently working as a research assistant for Dr. Barzda's team. In this project I have the opportunity to investigate nano � micro structures. Using a low powered femto laser, we are able to focus the beam on to samples as small as cells. With this technique we are able to detect images by scanning fluorescence, SHG and THG of the corresponding cells.
Some of my duties involve assisting with technical support to requirements of the group and research for devices and techniques that might be handy for the project.
