Christina Alpmann

// studied physics at the University of Münster and is currently working as a research assistant in the Institute of Applied Physics

// Her research focuses on the holographic modulation and analysis of complex light fields in terms of amplitude, phase and polarisation for use in optical micromanipulation applications, which is the subject of her doctoral studies in Cornelia Denz's "Nonlinear Photonics" lab

Cell experiments with optical tweezers are revolutionising biomedicine

Tweezing without touching - von Robert Meissner, Christina Alpmann, Álvaro Barroso, Prof. Dr. Cornelia Denz

Ultramodern imaging techniques such as the Nobel Prize-winning STED micro­scopy enable the investigation of organisms, cells, bacteria and even viruses, DNA or individual molecules at very high spatial and temporal resolution. Active intervention in these tiniest of biological structures has been largely limited to indirect methods, however. While new developments such as microtweezers and micromechanical clamps are promising, these devices generally...
