Viva Horowitz

Assistant Professor of Physics Viva Horowitz recently gave an invited research presentation titled “Confining colloids: From dynamic artificial cells to luminescent nanodiamond sensors” at Union College.

Horowitz described her work building a dynamic cytoplasm in an artificial cell and her work measuring magnetic fields with optically levitated nanodiamonds. Her presentation concluded with a video by Houghton Yonge ’18 of a microfluidic sorting device. Yonge built the device this semester and is using it in his senior thesis project in Horowitz’s physics lab.
