SPIE Photonics West, the leading global event for the photonics and laser industries took place in San Francisco early February 2019. Attendees enjoyed a week full of cutting-edge research (over 5,000 presentations) and courses, two world-class exhibitions (1,300 companies), a robust industry program, and plenty of networking opportunities.
Mounika Rapolu participated in the lab visit to BIOMEDICAL PHOTONIC IMAGING LAB headed by Professor Wang-Yuhl (William) Oh at Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology. The Institute is involved in learning the techniques for in-vivo mouse brain surgery protocol to achieve high quality cranial window and imaging with contrast agent intralipid with 1300 nm optical coherence microscopy(OCM).
On the 30 Sept.-5 Oct., Mounika Rapolu took part in the Fractal Geometry and Stochastics 6 conference. FGS 6 is an international conference that has grown into a leading platform that connects researchers working in fractal geometry and related fields. Mounika Rapolu have been selected to present a poster on “Multifractal, Fractal and Lacunarity analysis of the three-dimensional cerebral vasculature of the mouse brain in vivo”.
Julia Sudyka was invited by dr Arkadiusz Kosior to give an one-hour talk on recent progress made in context of novel imaging systems developed in group of Prof. Wojtkowski. During the seminar of Atomic Optics department she presented the project concerning Single-pixel camera.
The EOS Biennial Meeting (EOSAM), a major European event for the European optics and photonics community, was held in the congress center of TUDelft in Delft Netherlands, October 8-12, 2018. Over 400 attendees took part in the event and over 350 interesting presentations were held on optics and photonics. Leading experts from optical field (e.g. Zeiss company) tutored short courses about practical information on optics design or optimal data processing.
On the 1st and 2nd October, Agnieszka Tadrzak, Patrycja Nitoń, Monika Kuczyńska-Wydorska took part in the MSCA 2018 - Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions Annual Conference organized in Vienna, under the Austrian EU Presidency. The aim of the conference was to discuss strategic objectives in the EU research and education policy areas. This two-day conference was divided into: lectures, panel discussions and workshops.
The purpose of the trip was to participate in “Laser Technology Symposium 2018” conference. The conference was devoted to the latest results in laser physics and technology developments, as well as to lasers’ applications: in spectroscopy, medicine, military and scientific uses. Jakub Bogusławski presented a talk entitled “Active mode-locking using graphene modulators”.
Professor Chris Dainty visited the Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences (IPC PAS) under a series of cyclical lectures on interdisciplinary emerging research. During his career, Prof. Dainty has investigated problems in optical imaging, scattering and propagation. In these areas, he has co-authored or edited six books, approximately 140 peer-reviewed papers and 220 conference presentations.
Innovation Source: How to convert EU-funded research in MEMS and MOEMS technologies into a success story with market-oriented exploitation?
The fifth open lecture under a series of “Innovation source” was held on November 19th, 2018 at the Institute of Physical Chemistry PAS (IPC). At the invitation of the ERA Chair Holder, Prof. Christophe Gorecki, Director of research at CNRS and Head of the MOEMS team at the FEMTO-ST Institute
