The Art of Science!!

A fun twist on nano-electrospray emitters developed in our research group! This work has been published in Nature: Scientific Reports and Optics Express. Current developments involve a strong industrial partnership with Trajan Scientific and Medical.

Congratulations, Kyle! | April, 2017

Kyle Bachus successfully defended his Ph.D. Thesis on "Engineering patterned materials and microstructured fibres for microfluidics and analytical applications" on April 26th, 2017. Richard and Kyle attended the convocation on June 2nd, 2017

Agilent Technologies and the Oleschuk Group team up with Dr. Philip Jessop for the development of "CO2-modified solvents for chromatographic separation". This work was recently published in Green Chemistry and looks to reduce the environmental impact of chemical separation. | March, 2017

Our group have recently developed a method to rapidly pattern and prototype microfluidic substrates capable of generating droplets less than 1 nL in volume. | February, 2017

We also implemented these substrates into a 3D-printed device coupled with fluorescence spectroscopy for the rapid detection of quenching species. This work has been recently published in ACS Applied Materials and Interfaces.

Welcome Matthias to the group for the double Master's degree program between the University of Stuttgart and Queen's University. Matthias Hermann is the first student participating in this program. | September, 2016

Dr. Oleschuk’s Group just published the paper about “Particle-Free” Magnetic Actuation of Droplets in Analytical Chemistry. | September, 2016
