Research interests

In his early research, Dr Chan developed many new infrared spectroscopic imaging and Raman applications, particularly using the attenuated total reflection (ATR) FTIR imaging, to study a wide range of pharmaceutical and biological systems. These include label-free imaging of drug distributions in compacted pharmaceutical tablets, dissolutions of pharmaceutical formulations in water, stabilities of pharmaceutical substances under controlled environments in a high-throughput manner as well as diffusions of chemicals in polymer film/fibre and biological tissues such as hair and skin, composite materials, microfluidic systems and live cells. He has also developed expertise in applying confocal Raman to obtain depth profiles of samples and using tip-enhanced Raman to study carbon nanotubes. 

Recently, Dr Chan’s research is mainly focused on the application of FTIR to study how living cells interact with pharmaceutical substances and techniques to improve spatial resolution and specificity of FTIR.
