The Elegant Mind Club open a booth to show our activities!
We had several visitors to our lab on Friday. 5th graders from Toluca Lake Elementary School visited our lab rooms and were given a short presentation about our research.
We had a wonderful open house on Friday, May 30. Thank you everyone for helping this event! For more information, Click here.
The first 3D image by the Bessel Beam Sheet Illumination has been performed successfully, using the whole mouse brain of Clarity. This is 1 mm x 1 mm x 200 um of 3D volume.
Three key members, Blake, Paul and Steve, are standing in front of the Bessel Beam system, after successful 3D imaging.
We have moved the Electrotaxis experiment to the best optical table at Knudsen B-171. Here Taejoon is timing the camera's switch to take another round of data.
Below is one of the runs with 8 V/cm electric field. It is 10x faster than real. HV was off at the beginning, then then turn on and off. Clear electrotaxis towards right (= negative) with +/- 60 degree opening angle are observed. When HV is off, they retract backwards for a moment, followed by the omega turn.
