Chemical Imaging at the Nanoscale

This project is aimed at developing a novel non-scanning, near-field imaging probe for the dynamic, sub-diffraction limited chemical imaging of samples (e.g., cell membranes, etc.).  These SERS nano-imaging probes will allow for high resolution chemical images to be obtained, providing unprecedented information about chemical chemical and biochemical dynamics and interactions.
