Optical waveguide-based single-molecule studies for medical diagnostics and drug screening applications
Paper in proceedings, 2014

Measurements of single binding events between membrane-protein receptors and their ligands in near-natural environments are presented, and the advantage with single-molecule sensitivity is discussed in the context of biophysics, medical diagnostics and drug discovery.
