Biophysics and Biophotonics Group

Tritc labeled ZnO nanoparticels in lung tissue

The Biophysics and Biophotonics group at the Department of Physics at University of Milano-Bicocca is active in research and education for nano-technology and biotechnology. Current research interests of the group include optical non-linear excitation microscopy , nanoparticles for biophysical and biomedical applications, fluorescence correlation spectroscopy and optical nanoscopy.

The group runs a University facility for non-linear optical microscopy and to this purpose it has collaborations with the Biotechnology, the Experimental Medicine and the Environmental Sciences Departments.
