Exploration of two-photon vision, i.e., a phenomenon of perception of pulsed near-infrared lasers due to two-photon absorption in visual pigments. Focuses on developing optical systems and methods for psychophysical testing of this newly discovered way of perception of light and on integrating these methods into ophthalmic imaging systems.
Physical Optics and Biophotonics
The research in our group can be seen as a perfect interplay between physics, biology and chemistry. We are focusing on developing imaging techniques and using them in many biological and chemical systems.
