We build novel imaging technologies
The Lew Lab leverages innovations in applied physics, electrical engineering, computational algorithms, and chemistry to create optical imaging systems with unprecedented performance. We partner with scientists and engineers across all disciplines to develop technologies to solve unmet needs in science, medicine, and society.
The Lew Lab is a team of inventors, thinkers, and problem solvers working at the intersection of science and technology. Meet the members of this team. Excited about joining our team?
Creating impactful technology is our passion
One of our goals is to develop advanced nanoscopes (microscopes with nanometer resolution) that can visualize the activity of molecular machines inside and between living cells. These tools would allow researchers to observe a variety of processes involved in health and disease: viruses invading cells, cells packaging biomolecular cargo to communicate with other cells, and much more. The nanoscopes we build enable us to see activities in the molecular world within living cells that could never be seen before.
Hesam and Oumeng gave excellent presentations at SPIE BiOS (Photonics West). See them here:
“A robust statistical estimation (RoSE) algorithm jointly recovers the 3D location and intensity of single molecules accurately and precisely”
“Measuring 3D molecular orientation and rotational mobility using a Tri-spot point spread function”
