Background free ultra-sensitive Frequency-Modulation SRS

Supervisor: Dr. Hervé Rigneault

MUSIQ Research

To develop an ultra-sensitive background free microscopy scheme for vibrational imaging by means of stimulated Raman scattering (SRS). Based on recent developments at the Institut Fresnel on three colours SRS whose frequencies can be arranged to address the same or two different vibrational frequencies, together with advanced modulation schemes and parallel excitation, we will build a wide-field shot-noise limited background free SRS microscope optimized for cell and tissue imaging at high speed.

Scientific Background

He achieved the Bachelor’s degree in 2017 and Master’s degree in 2019, both in Material Science at University of Milano-Bicocca. The Bachelor’s thesis about bimetal nanoclusters for biological and biomedical applications. During the Master degree, the main courses followed were related to Photonics, Optical Characterization and Quantum Dots, his Master’s thesis was focused on the synthesis and the optical characterisation of scintillating nanocomposites for fundamental studying of the scintillation process and rare ionizing radiation-matter interaction events.
