Coherent Control: Using Light Pulses to Control Neurons

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. For more information on this research, please visit: https://news.illinois.edu/blog/view/6367/579772
