Meets Thursday 9:00-10:00 Physics Room 1131

Instructor: Prof. Keith Lidke

Room 1140, Physics and Astronomy
phone: (505)277-0302


The format will be one ~ 30 minute presentation per week of either a research report or a journal paper presentation. Topics will be any aspect of fluorescence super-resolution imaging, single particle tracking, single molecule imaging or spectral imaging. After the contributed talk, I will discuss topics in computing/programming related to the work in my lab. Topics will include object oriented programming in Matlab, generating Matlab mex files, instrument control, using Microsoft Visual Studio, and GPU programming using NVIDIA's CUDA. We may also have a few full-hour talks by external speakers during the semester.

Registration is not required for attendance or participation, but please register if you can.


Credit for the seminar requires attendance and one research or journal presentation.
