University Establishes Photonics Institute
David Triggle, provost at State University of New York in Buffalo, announced the creation of the Institute for Lasers, Photonics and Biophotonics. He said the institute will train a high-tech work force and develop technologies for industrial applications.
The institute will work with companies in the envisioned photonics corridor of western New York and southern Ontario, Canada, including BASF, Eastman Kodak Co., the Rochester General Hospital Laser Center and Photonics Research Ontario. Planned fields of research include sensor technologies, holographic data storage and nanoclinics, which are nanometer-scale bubbles designed to ferry optical probes or other diagnostic and therapeutic agents to a cancer cell.
