Featured Scientist – Struan Bourke

Struan is PhD Student in the Department of Physics at King’s College London and will be showing his work at the London Light Launch on the 9th May 2018

Microscopy is an important tool, both for research and diagnostics. Despite this, current probes struggle in terms of brightness; stability; lifetime and prone to photobleaching. Conjugated polymers, organic semiconductors used in solar cells and LEDs, have shown great promise as biological imaging agents. The work shown here are conjugated polymer nanoparticles.
