Dr Simon Hanna

My primary research interest is in the physics of holographic optical tweezers and their applications in nanoscience. This work forms part of the Dynamic Holographic Assembler project.

I am also interested in molecular nanophysics. In collaboration with other members of the Nanophysics and Soft Matter group, I study image formation in the atomic force microscope (AFM) and single molecule force-spectroscopy.
I also study self-assembling molecular nanostructures through molecular modeling techniques including Monte Carlo and molecular dynamics simulations.

I have co-authored a book on Liquid Crystalline Polymers
