Jochen Arlt

Research Fellow

Jochen is the lab manager of COSMIC (Collaborative Optical Spectroscopy, Micromanipulation and Imaging Centre, and also responsible for most of the optical instrumentation within the Soft Condensed Matter group. Part of his research interest is focused on the development and optimisation of optical methods and instrumentation to interrogate biological and soft condensed matter systems. This includes optical tweezers, advanced imaging methods such as fluorescence 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.
