– Curly and Harrison understand emission polarization rotation by plasmonic nanorods!

Tiancheng Curly Zuo collaborated with Harrison Goldwyn from the Masiello Lab at the University of Washington to use a combination of single-molecule microscopy and analytical theory to understand how far-field interference and off-resonant coupling contribute to the rotation of dye emission by plasmonic nanorods.

– Congratulations Dr. Stephen Lee!

Congratulations to Stephen Lee who defended his thesis on “Enhanced, Live-Cell, Super-Resolution Imaging and Single-Molecule Emission Spectrum Reshaping”! Stephen will do some last experiments in our lab this spring before moving on to a postdoctoral research position.
