Project: Development and biomedical application of a
novel label-free photonic crystal sensor
Advisor: Theodore Norris
About Yunbo: Yunbo got his B.S. in
Mechanical Engineering (2002) and M.S. in Optical
Engineering (2005) both from Tsinghua University. His M.S. research was
focused on optimization of holographic data storage and correlation
recognition system, and he was honored as "Scientific and Technological
Achievement Completer" by China Ministry of Education in 2004.
he is developing a novel optical biosensors for
biomolecular binding analysis, which has achieved significantly higher
sensitivity than the state-of-the-art surface plasmon resonance based
instrument, and will allow people to perform binding studies that are
currently out of reach of those systems already on the market. His work
was turned into a patent and is being commercialized.
