Major: Applied Physics
Sean Patrick O’Connor’s research interests are in nonlinear optics, nonlinear spectroscopy, biomedical imaging, and photobiomodulation. He is currently researching Impulsive Stimulated Brillouin Spectroscopy (ISBS) which assesses the viscoelastic properties of materials with shorter acquisition times than spontaneous Brillouin scattering. His goal is to push the spatial resolution of ISBS to cellular and subcellular imaging limits and observe real time changes in the viscoelastic properties of cells and biomaterials.
