Research in the area of scanners for laser scanning fluorescence microscopy particularly confocal and two- and multi-photon systems. Familiar with the Femto-second ultra-short pulsed laser (Ti:S) as an excitation source for two-photon microscopy. Develop and investigate an optical system performance using OSLO, the optics software for layout and optimization. Develop a new 3D volume scanner which can be used for imaging a scattering media.
Can teach raytrace and modeling optical software OSLO and TracePro.
From my point of view, I do manage the second year Physics teaching laboratory. Officially, I am a technical officer.

While it is clear that on-line education offers new opportunities for students to study in a way that suits their particular learning style, there are laboratory-based disciplines that require hands-on experience with real world systems. This is especially true in Physics where a standard curriculum involves a large amount of laboratory-based work. While computer-based simulation software has been used extensively in engineering and various science-based areas these are not a direct substitute for traditional Physics experimental labs which provide students with the practical skills of handling real equipment, and measuring with sufficient accuracy and precision to allow comparison with various theoretical predictions. On-line laboratories where distance students have remote control over real laboratory equipment is a practical alternative to traditional physics laboratories, at least for some classes of experiments. This paper describes the development of a remote-controlled Cosmic Ray Telescope experiment at the University of Newcastle.
