|Title:||Experimental study on surface plasmon induced optical manipulation and imaging||Authors:||Tan, Yong Yi.||Keywords:||DRNTU::Engineering::Electrical and electronic engineering::Optics, optoelectronics, photonics||Issue Date:||2009||Source:||Tan, Y. Y. (2009). Experimental study on surface plasmon induced optical manipulation and imaging. Master’s thesis, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore.||Abstract:||As the global standard of living rise, comes demand for improvement in health care. Coupled with a technological progression towards nanotechnology, the evolution of biotechnology from macrotechnology is a natural phenomenon. Fueled by the low cost of micro-fabrication, miniaturization of health care devices, while maintaining high through-put, is the ultimate destination. Ever since the first application of surface plasmon imaging two decades ago, the trains of engineering and scientific advancements in surface plasmon applications have never slowed down. Only recently have surface plasmon been applied in particle manipulation, with the promise of nanometer scale of control. In this thesis, the idea of exploiting the propulsive, immobilizing and imaging capabilities of the surface plasmon phenomenon, ultimately on a single platform, is investigated.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10356/14808||Fulltext Permission:||open||Fulltext Availability:||With Fulltext|
