Surface plasmon resonance microscopy



Seminar Overview

Plasmonics are one of the most important methods used in biosensing. Though plasmonics were first proposed for use in biosensing over 30 years ago, intensive research and technological developments continue to this day both in academia and industry over a wide range of applications. This talk will give an overview of the basic physics and technology underlying plasmonics, followed by recent advances in plasmonics-based high-resolution imaging of biological cells. The talk will also give examples of how plasmonics can be combined with other methods for multimode sensing


Prof. Paul Charette, ing., PhD

Professeur agrégé et Chaire de Recherche en biophotonique et analyse des signaux

Département de génie électrique et informatique, Sherbrooke University

Prof. Paul Charette is a Professor in the department of electrical and computer engineering at the Université de Sherbrooke (UdeS). He obtained his Ph.D. in biomedical engineering from McGill University in 1986 followed by postdoctoral fellowships at the University of Auckland (New Zealand) and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (USA). He joined the UdeS in 2012 after a career in industrial R&D. His research interests are in biosensing and labs-on-a-chip using a variety of technologies such as fluorescence, surface plasmon resonance, microcalorimetry, and surface acoustic waves.


The semiar will be held at P2-2002, 3IT Pavilion, Sherbrooke University and made available to the other students via videoconference at Burnside hall # 107, McGill University
