would like to invite you to attend a very special seminar by Nobel
Laureate Prof William E. Moerner.
Prof William E. Moerner
2014 Nobel Laureate in Physical Chemistry for the development of
super-resolved fluorescence microscopy
Harry S. Mosher Professor of Chemistry and Professor, by courtesy of
Stanford University, USA
*Date: *11 February 2016
*Time: *3.00pm - 5.00pm
*Venue: *South 1 Lecture Theatre, 43 Rainforest Walk, Monash
This event is free for everyone to attend. Drinks and nibbles will be
provided after the talk.
Please register your attendance at RSVP
*About super-resolution microscopy:*
In normal microscopes the wavelength of light sets a limit to the level of
detail possible. However this limitation can be circumvented by methods
that make use of fluorescence, a phenomenon in which certain substances
become luminous after having been exposed to light. Around 2000, Eric
Betzig and William E. Moerner helped create a method in which fluorescence
in individual molecules is steered by light. An image of very high
resolution is achieved by combining images in which different molecules are
activated. This makes it possible to track processes occurring inside
Hope to see you there.
Any enquiries or dietaries flick me an email.
