Several research stays have brought members from the Biomolecular Photonics group to the Artic University of Tromsø in northern Norway and vice versa. The collaboration under the management of Dr. Mark Schüttpelz (Bielefeld University) and Prof. Balpreet Singh Ahluwalia (University of Tromsø) is funded by a DAAD travel grant. The project aims at realizing super-resolution microscopy directly on waveguide chips to overcome the typical drawbacks of complicated bulk optical components in present nanoscopy implementations. After a successful start in 2015, this fruitful cooperation is continued in 2016.
Project participants discuss next steps and appreciate the artic landscape during a coffee break on the rooftop of the lab building in Tromsø.
