The primary focus of our research is in interactions of electric field (including light) with biological cells and tissues.
In optical domain we study dynamics of tissue response to transient hyperthermia, multiphoton ionization and coherent Raman scattering.
Quasi static electric field-induced effects include neural stimulation, electronic control of vasculature, electroporation, plasma-mediated discharges and associated thermal effects.
We develop applications of these interactions to novel surgical, therapeutic, prosthetic and imaging technologies in medicine, primarily in ophthalmology.
Many of the interdisciplinary projects are conducted in collaboration between the Department of Ophthalmology and Hansen Experimental Physics Laboratory.
