Instrumentation

This course involves the measurement of phenomena ranging from nano-scale molecular processes in biological cells right through to macro-scale chemical processes in industrial reactors, including environmental monitoring, disease diagnosis, drug and explosive detection and molecular imaging for health-care and the life-sciences. To meet the measurement demands, research is conducted into new instrumentation exploiting a wide range of advanced chemical, biochemical and physical sensors that utilise optical spectroscopies; complex mass spectrometries; laser generated ultra-sound; laser trapping; polymer microfabrication; microfluidics; optical fibre sensing; and PET tomography.
