Matthew Lew, PhD

Associate Professor, Electrical and Systems Engineering

The Lew Lab builds advanced imaging systems to study biological and chemical systems at the nanoscale. Our technology leverages innovations in applied optics, signal and image processing, design optimization, and physical chemistry. Super-resolution is a key feature of many of our imaging systems–the ability to overcome the resolution limit of wave physics, called the diffraction limit, in order to visualize the nanoscale world. Single-molecule imaging is also a central theme of our research–enabling our technology to see individual molecules as they drive biological and chemical dynamics at the nanoscale.

Research keywords: super-resolution microscopy; single-molecule spectroscopy; nanoscale sensing
