Overview

Welcome to the Vibrational Imaging Laboratory (VIBRA Lab).

We are interested in :

  • Developing and applying label-free chemical imaging techniques based on vibrational spectroscopy (Infrared and Raman micro-spectroscopy) and multi-photon processes (Coherent Raman Microscopy, SHG). One of the main aims of this research activity is to unveil specific bio-chemical signatures of cancer stem cells, with a particular focus on understanding the dysregulation of their lipid metabolism. 
  • Using high-resolution 3D printing based on Direct Laser Writing for the fabrication of novel micro-optics, towards the miniaturization of complex optical systems. This research activity takes advantage from an integrated approach that combines design, micro/nanofabrication and optical characterization.
