Jian-An Huang


Jian-An is an expert of nanophotonics and plasmonics and a group leader of the Jianan lab of Nanophotonic Biosensors in University of Oulu. He received a Ph.D. degree on reproducible surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS) biosensors from City University of Hong Kong, and worked on scanning near-field optical microscopy and low-dimentional semiconductor photodetectors at University of Hong Kong and plasmonic nanotechnologies at Italian Institute of Technology. His group combines plasmonic nanostructures (nanotube, nanopore, nanopillar) with molecular manipulation methods for single-cell, single-particle and single-molecule biosensing toward digital healthcare and personalized medicine.
