Abstract: The speaker talks about the history of microscopy, then talks about the works of the winners of Nobel Prize in Chemistry 2014, Eric Betzig, Stefan W. Hell and William E. Moerner, their research on superresolution fluorescence microscopy and its applications and challenges.
Prof Michael Loy received his BSc and PhD degrees from the University of California at Berkeley in 1966 and 1971 respectively. Before coming to HKUST, Prof Loy worked for more than 20 years at IBM's T. J. Watson Research Center in New York. He joined HKUST in 1993 as Professor of Physics and served as Dean of Science from 1998 to 2004, and is currently Chair Professor of Physics. He is also an Affiliate Member of the HKUST Jockey Club Institute for Advanced Study.
Prof Loy's main research interests include nonlinear optical propagation effects, two-photon coherent transients, nonlinear optical studies of surfaces, the state-selective studies of molecule-surface interactions, and ultrafast dynamics induced by femtosecond laser pulses. His recent interest is on super-resolution optical microscopy for live cell imaging. He is a Fellow of the American Physical Society.
