Dr. Shuyu Xu is a guest researcher working with Dr. Young Jong Lee in the Biomaterials Group. Her research at NIST focuses on (1) developing new imaging technologies of 3D molecular orientation based on polarization-controlled broadband coherent anti-Stokes Raman scattering (BCARS) and polarization-controlled infrared (IR) absorption; and (2) understanding the kinetics of insulin aggregation/fibrillation using the new water-uncloaked IR spectroscopy. Previously in her PhD research at the University at Delaware, she developed a highly sensitive and reproducible surface enhanced Raman scattering substrate for trace arsenic detection.
