Circular Dichroism - Thermal Lens Microscopy: A New Approach to Life Detection

Active Technology Project

Project Introduction

Circular Dichroism - Thermal Lens Microscopy: A New Approach to Life Detection
We will continue the development a bench-top breadboard, we have initiated using parts from leveraged resources, and are seeking funding to perform a scientific proof-of-concept CD-TLM demonstration of chiral-biosignature detection. The thermal lens method is a very sensitive measurement technique based on absorption-induced temperature change. AS a next step, we will seek follow on funding through SMD PICASSO or other technology development programs to develop a brassboard system that extends the circular polarized light source and detector to the near-UV region.
