Light scattering in complex mesoscale systems. (2004)

The aim of the proposed project is to develop tested theoretic models of and test applications of the scattering of light in complex mesoscale systems. This will include: light scattering by biological cells including optical cancer detection remote sensing of cell populations flow cytometry and optical tweezers; optically driven micromachines and nano- and micro-structured materials. These applications are of considerable technological social and economic importance and significant advances are possible. Methods developed during this project will allow accurate theoretical calculations to be performed where only inadequate approximations have previously been possible.
