Victoria University Appoints First Nanotech Professor
May 2007
Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand, has appointed scientist Pablo Etchegoin as its first professor of nanotechnology, effective July 1. Etchegoin, currently an associate professor in the School of Chemical & Physical Sciences and a principal investigator in the school's MacDiarmid Institute for Advanced Materials & Nanotechnology, joined Victoria in 2003. His research areas include optical methods for detecting small quantities of molecules and the study of single molecules by laser spectroscopy. He is also interested in the use of surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) in biological applications. Etchegoin has research ties with the physics department (Blackett Laboratory) and the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering at Imperial College London, as well as with the National Physical Laboratory in Britain.

laser spectroscopy
That part of the science involved in the study of the theory and interpretation of spectra that uses the unique characteristics of the laser as an integral part in the development of information for analysis. Raman spectroscopy and emission spectroscopy are two areas where lasers are used.
The use of atoms, molecules and molecular-scale structures to enhance existing technology and develop new materials and devices. The goal of this technology is to manipulate atomic and molecular particles to create devices that are thousands of times smaller and faster than those of the current microtechnologies.
Pertaining to optics and the phenomena of light.
The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
