Jenny Magnes has researched various areas involving optics: diatomic spectroscopy of alkalis, quantum optics, molecular optics, opto-mechanical techniques, nano-structures and biophotonics. Jenny Magnes is interested in developing techniques that are beneficial during classroom interactions. She has also successfully involved undergraduates in her research and bringing research topics into the classroom. Recently, Jenny Magnes and her research group dove into investigating micro-organisms using optical techniques like scattering and various interference effects. Some interference studies involve iridescence.
