Research

MPIL aims to generate the scientific knowledge required to design novel precision and optical instrumentations at various length scale for measuring, manipulating, visualizing, and manufacturing things at micrometer and nanometer scales. We use the principles of mechanical design, precision engineering, optics, chemistry, biology and manufacturing – in combination with invention – to create new models, tools, machines, and fabrications processes that accelerate discoveries in medicine and science. Toward this goal, we have developed the following research areas:

  • Ultrafast Laser Applications

  • Biomedical Optics

  • Precision Engineering

  • Nanomanufacturing

  • MEMS / BioMEMS
