My colleague at the new Institute for Quantitative Health Science and Engineering (IQ-see brochure) Prof. Qiu Zhen, and I have funds to build a “next-generation” multimodal microscope with a sub-50 fs 1070 nm laser. (see for example Multimodal nonlinear optical imaging of unstained retinas in the epi-direction with a sub-40 fs Yb-fiber laser, GA Murashova, CA Mancuso, JL Canfield, S Sakami, K Palczewski, .

If you have a recent graduate, or someone near graduation that would be interested in playing an important role in this development and then taking advantage of the microscope for several collaborative biomedical studies, please let us know.
