Professor Kenith Meissner is head of the Physics Department at Swansea University.
The Meissner laboratory focuses on developing nano- and micro-structured materials and optical techniques for biomedical imaging and sensing applications. The research combines materials development with expertise in optical system design.
Materials work is anchored by microwave-assisted synthesis of nanostructures including nanoclusters, nanoparticles and nanorods. Coupled with expertise in optical spectroscopy and design, novel imaging and sensing techniques are developed through rational design.
