What's New In the Lab?
The Loock Laser Lab booth made another appearance at the annual Science Rendezvous Kingston on May 11, 2019. This year’s display featured our laser fountain, vanishing beads, a ‘stealth’ computer screen, and the ever-popular blue laser! A big thanks to the many volunteers who helped make this event a success.

Adam Pejic defended his research thesis “Flow-through plasmonic sensing, based on Silicone-coated nanohole arrays” on April 25, 2019. Adam’s work was co-supervised by Carlos Escobedo (CHEE) and resulted in a close collaboration with members of the Escobedo Group. Adam is a visiting student from Frankfurt, Germany and the research project will count towards his German M.Sc. degree.
In our latest cover aarticle in Adv. Sus. Sys Hao Chen, John Saunders, Sogol Borjian and Xiaowei Wu were coating microphotonic tandem ring resonators with tetrasulfide‐functionalized mesoporous silica films to create remarkably sensitive and specific sensors for lead, Pb(II) in water.
