Center Overview

The Regional Laser and Biomedical Technology Laboratories (RLBL) at the University of Pennsylvania, specializes in the application of laser spectroscopy to biochemical, biophysical and biomedical research. The primary focus is on developing laser-based technologies to measure atomic level features of the fastest steps occurring in biological processes. This involves a balanced approach concerned with the design and implementation of laser systems, the incorporation of advances in laser technology into configurations suitable for biophysical research and the development of laser experiments that bring out new features of biological structure and dynamics.The Regional Laser and Biomedical Technology Laboratories (RLBL) at the University of Pennsylvania, specializes in the application of laser spectroscopy to biochemical, biophysical and biomedical research.
