Light microscopy work in our Laser Lab

CEB is delighted to confirm our contribution to the  'Physics at work' exhibition run by the Cavendish, which has now moved online. This is aimed at students aged 14-16 years old, who are currently are making their GCSE or A-level choices and starting to think about potential future paths.

Our exhibitor entry consists of a video demo  on super-resolution fluorescent microscopy technique: Stochastic Optical Reconstruction Microscopy (STORM) to showing how physics principles are used in chemical engineering and biotechnology, courtesy from our researcher Dr Stanislaw Makarchuk in the Laser Analytics Lab.

As part of the same event, we have also been given the opportunity to run a live Q&A session on 23 September 2:15 pm, which will be hosted on the Cavendish mentoring platform Isaac Physics allowing students watching to send written questions. Along with addressing any questions students have, our admisions gurus, students and graduates will be informing prospective students of the wide range of roles to which the study of physics, chemical engineering/biotechnology, or any STEM subject for that matter, can lead to and show that all sorts of people can become engineers or scientists.
