Welcome to the homepage of the research group of Biophotonics of the University of Liège. This laboratory, created in December 2008 in the Physics Department of the University of Liège, is active in the biophotonics field which deals with the use of light as diagnostic tools, such as in biosensors, or therapeutic agents, such as in photodynamic therapy.
In our laboratory, we are mainly interested by the high potentialities offered by nanometer objects such as metallic nanoparticles (NPs) and quantum dots (QDs). Indeed, such particles are expected to improve light detection or light efficiency due to particular optical properties: surface plasmon resonance phenomenon for NPs and localized energy levels for QDs.
Our main projects are described with details in the research section.
