Did you know that light can be used to pick up and hold a single blood cell? Physicist Prof. David McGloin explains how light can be used to create tweezers and tractor beams that can probe the microscopic world, and in doing so help to study a range of problems such as understanding the mechanisms of disease and how we can probe the fundamental properties of light itself.
David is a Professor of Optical Physics in the School of Electrical and Data Engineering at UTS. He works on the development of optical tools to explore questions related to how aerosols interact with the atmosphere and ways to examine how cancerous cells differ from healthy cells.
