Research Interests

Far-field optical imaging methods are essential for precise visualization of the dynamics of biomolecules and nanoparticles because they require no contact and make minimal intrusion to the sample. The research in the Fang Laboratory is aimed to open up new frontiers in chemical and biological discovery through the development and use of a novel optical imaging platform, which provides sub-diffraction-limited spatial resolution, high angular resolution, excellent detectability, and nanometer localization precision for single molecules and nanoparticles in live biological samples and microfluidic devices.
