Meet the speakers of the 2021 ASB meeting – Prof Warwick Bowen

Prof Bowen is the plenary speaker at the upcoming 2021 ASB meeting and will talk about how he and his team use quantum technologies to improve biological imaging.

Prof Bowen and his team have recently made headlines with their quantum microscope that can “reveal biological structures that would otherwise be impossible to see”. As Prof Bowen noted “The quantum entanglement in our microscope provides 35 per cent improved clarity without destroying the cell, allowing us to see minute biological structures that would otherwise be invisible.” This new technology will open the door to improving microscopy techniques for studying living cells. The work was published in Nature.

Prof Bowen leads the Queensland Quantum Optics Laboratory and is a Chief Investigator at the ARC Centre of Excellence for Engineered Quantum Systems. His research ranges from fundamental to applied science and spans across various disciplines including optomechanics, biosensing, nanofabrication and microscopy of biological systems.

To listen to Prof Bowen’s plenary lecture and all our other national and international speakers, register for the 2021 ASB meeting. The meeting will take place from Nov 29 to Dec 1 as a hybrid meeting at the University of Melbourne, with sessions delivered both in face-2-face and online format.
