Our Research

Microelectromechanical Systems (MEMS)

We design and develop MEMS for sensing and actuation systems, looking at applications from acoustic bio-inspired sensors to optical MEMS in laser or imaging systems.

Laser gas diagnostics

Our optical sensor research focuses on trace gas sensing in industrial and process control settings, from large scale in combustion diagnostic to miniaturised systems, as well as optical fibre sensing.

Microfluidics and Lab-on-a-Chip

We develop microfluidics and lab-on-a-chip platforms for high through-put bioassays for applications in neuroscience, cancer research and artifical cell membranes.

Biomedical Imaging

We develop biomedical imaging systems using photoacoustic imaging, miniaturised fluorescence imaging modalities and multi-modal approaches.
