Dr J Arlt
Jochen is a member of the following School research institute and research areas:
I am lab manager of COSMIC (Collaborative Optical Spectroscopy, Micromanipulation and Imaging Centre, www.cosmic.ed.ac.uk) and also responsible for most of the optical instrumentation within the Soft Condensed Matter group.
Part of my research insterest is focussed on the development and optimisation of optical methods and insrumentation to interrogate biological and soft condensed matter systems. This includes optical tweezers, advanced imaging methods such as flourescence lifetime imaging and coherent anti-Stokes Raman scattering microscopy as well as Dynamic Differential Microscopy.
The second major research interest is the physics of active particles with particular emphasis on motile bacteria.
I am a senior demonstrator for the Junior Honours Experimental Physics Laboratory and typically supervise several experimental Senior Honours Projects.
