The synergy between photonics, nanotechnology and biotechnology is spawning the emerging fields of nano-biotechnology
and nano-biophotonics. Photonic innovations already hurdle the diffraction barrier for imaging with
nanoscopic resolutions. However, scientific hypothesis testing demands tools, not only for observing nanoscopic
phenomena, but also for reaching into and manipulating nanoscale constituents in this domain. This report is two-fold
desribing the new use of proprietary strongholds we currently are establishing at DTU Fotonik on new means of
sculpting of both light and matter for bio-probing at the smallest scales.© (2012) COPYRIGHT Society of Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers (SPIE). Downloading of the abstract is permitted for personal use only.
