Our job is to produce very tiny, very powerful, and very controllable light sources that can illuminate the activities of nanoscale structures inside living cells

The overall goal of QSTORM-AO is to develop a wavefront-shaping, light-sheet microscope, using photoswitchable quantum dot fluorophores, that will enable 3D single-molecule localization 100um below the surface of a whole organism.
The Q Dot Team is synthesizing polymer-encapsulated quantum dot fluorophores and testing ways to make them photoswitchable – turning them selectively on and off in response to pulses of laser light.
