Welcome to our Lab Website!

Welcome to the BioPhotonics and Nanomedicine Lab (BPNLab) at the Institute of Applied Physics (IFAC-CNR) of the CNR in Florence. Our research activities focus on:

  • preclinical and clinical studies on the use of laser and other optoelectronics devices for minimally invasive surgery (e.g. in ophthalmology, microvascular surgery and dermatology)
  • development and applications of plasmonic nanoparticles for theranostics
  • microscopy analysis (e.g. fluorescence, Raman, multiphoton and photoacoustic) on molecules of biological and medical interest
  • plasmon-enhanced spectroscopies and sensing (SERS, TERS)
  • agri-food photonics and biosensing
