Label Free Vibrational Imaging for Biology and Medicine
by Dr. Sunney Xie, Harvard University
Stimulated Raman scattering microscopy is a label-free and noninvasive imaging technique that uses vibration spectroscopy as the contrast mechanism. Significant advances in sensitivity, selectivity, robustness and cost reduction have been made recently, allowing many biomedical applications
Dr. Sunney Xie is professor of chemistry and chemical biology at Harvard University. He is the 2013 recipient of the Ellis R. Lippincott Award, which is presented annually to an individual who has made significant contributions to the field of vibrational spectroscopy. This award was established in 1975 by OSA, the Coblentz Society and the Society for Applied Spectroscopy to honor the unique contributions of Ellis R. Lippincott to the field of vibrational spectroscopy. The purpose of the Ellis R. Lippincott Award is to honor Dr. Lippincott's memory by the recognition of significant contributions and notable achievements in the field of vibrational spectroscopy. The medal is sponsored jointly by the Coblentz Society, the Optical Society of America and the Society for Applied Spectroscopy.
MEETING SPONSORED BY
We are a group of industry professionals and interested individuals promoting the knowledge of Optics including applications and phenomena.
The NES/OSA meets monthly from September to May, generally excluding December, on the third Thursday of each month. Our meetings include a social hour, dinner and talk. These meetings are open to all individuals while members receive the benefits of a monthly mailing, reduced meeting dinner price and voting privileges during council elections. Please sign up online.
The NES/OSA is active in the support of optics education in area schools. The organization sponsors symposia and invited speakers for teachers, teaching grants for optics projects and science fairs.
For information please contact a member of our Executive Council.
