About the Seminar:

This talk will focus on the biomedical imaging and sensing applications of MEMS and micro-scanner technologies. I will explain the concept of MEMS-based confocal reflective and fluorescence microscopy and demonstrate the design, fabrication and testing of a novel polymer scanner based portable confocal microscope with a tunable focus. Subsequently, the talk will continue with a brief discussion of the proposed 3D printed microendoscope. Finally, I will conclude the talk by giving for future research.
