Imaging and Spectroscopy

We advance bioimaging

Digital Holography, Raman Microscopy and Terahertz Spectroscopy Laboratory at University at Albany designs and employs Digital Holographic Microscopy (DHM), Transport of Intensity Equation (TIE), Optical Tomographic, Raman and THz systems for biological applications.

Our lab uses state of the art equipment for Digital Holographic Microscopic measurements in both reflected and transmitted light. The holographic setups have a removable environmental chamber (IBIDI Nanolive Heating System/Temperature Controller/Gas Incubation System), mounted on a three-dimensional translation stage to image live biological samples.

The lab also has a Multiline Fully Automated Confocal Raman Microscope system (HORIBA XploRA PLUS), capable of chemically selective imaging of cells and tissues.
The lab also uses Nanolive 3D Cell Explorer tomographic microscope, which allows to instantly look inside of the living cells in 3D. We are also building a Terahertz setup, designed to image cell cultures in-vitro and in-vivo.
