Biophotonics Lab

The overarching research objective of Dr. Anis is to bring nonlinear imaging and sensing closer to the bedside by conceiving all-fiber, ultrafast, high-sensitivity platforms targeted at biomedical applications.

Our research seeks to further our understanding of light propagation in fiber media at high intensities, and translate that understanding into tangible outcomes in the form of novel all-fiber platforms. The focus of Dr. Anis' lab is on three inter-related themes: ultrafast sources, nonlinear microscopy/endoscopy and biosensors.

Facilities

Dr. Anis' lab is situated in the state-of-the art research facilities in the new Advanced Research Complex - a building designed and constructed from the ground up with photonics research in mind.

Dr. Anis's lab is divided into 3 separate rooms. One for nonlinear microscopy and endoscopy, the second for biosensors and the third is for femtosecond fiber lasers.

In addition the photonics Innovation lab is collocated with about a dozen other photonics research labs, and core facilities that include clean rooms
