Welcome to the UQ Optical Micromanipulation Group pages.

The Optical Micromanipulation Group is led by Professor Halina Rubinsztein-Dunlop.

Our group seeks to investigate the nature and applications of lights action on microscopic particles. We study all aspects of this diverse field from biophotonic applications such as studying the diffusion of neurosecretory vesicles to creating new technologies such as optically driven micro-rotators.

Research in the UQ optical micro manipulation group covers a broad range of topics. We are mainly interested in forces created when light and mater interact at the nano-scale and how this interaction may be exploited to do cutting edge scientific research.
