PhD defence ceremony

Bio-imaging using fluorescence microscopy is widely used for the study and visualization of biological processes with a high degree of specificity. However, the illumination used for fluorescence imaging can be invasive enough to affect the imaging process by causing photodamage. The quality of the recorded image largely depends on the illumination levels used for imaging resulting in a trade-off between image quality and photodamage. Venkataraman Krishnaswami explores smart illumination strategies aimed reducing photodamage and improving imaging sensitivity.
