Dr. Kevin Tsia, Associate Professor in Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering and his research team developed a new laser-scanning imaging technique that overcomes the limitations of existing technologies, providing more than 100 times faster in scan speed with high image resolution. The new technique not only can resolve the current challenge to meet the ever-increasing demand for speed and throughput, but could also empower new discovery in basic scientific research, with potential applications in a new generation of biomedical microscopy for precise and early diagnosis of diseases. The work was published in Light: Science and Applications in January 2017.
In addition, Dr. Tsia has recently received the 14th Chinese Science and Technology Award for Young Scientists in 2016 (第十四屆中國青年科技獎). The award aims at granting recognition to young scientists in China with exceptional accomplishments in the areas of natural science research, engineering technology or technology transfer. Out of the 98 awardees, Dr. Tsia is one of the only two awardees from Hong Kong, out of the 98 awardees nationwide.
