Professor Stephen Boppart and other Illinois researchers use ultrafast pulses of tailored light to make neurons fire in different patterns, the first example of "coherent control" in a living cell. Boppart is a professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering and the Department of Bioengineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He is also a member of the Bioimaging Science and Technology Group at the Beckman Institute.
