On 3rd and 4th of July 2019 Piotr Węgrzyn and Mounika Rapolu attended the Be-Optical Final conference organized by and within facilities of Max Planck Institute for Dynamics and Self-Organization. Topics covered by the conference included Biophotonics, Biomedical Imaging, Cardiac Electrophysiology and Optogenetics.
The European Conferences on Biomedical Optics (ECBO) is the premier European event bringing together scientists, engineers, and clinicians who work with optics and photonics to solve problems in biomedicine. The conference was a great opportunity to take a look at new trends in Biomedical Optics and related topics.
Marcin Marzejon visited the Institute of Physics NCU to measure two-photon vision threshold values. During his visit, two subjects suffering from cataracts were investigated. For every subject, measurements of visual acuity test and visual field test were performed.
Professor M. Wojtkowski and his team participated in conference Biophotonics Congress: Optics in the Life Sciences, organized by Optical Society of America. This event provided researchers with opportunity to discuss design, fabrication, and application of biomedical optical technologies for life sciences.
Main goal of reported trip was a study visit to Optical Biomedical Engineering Laboratory at the University of Western Australia. Karol Karnowski met there with prof. Barry Cense (local group supervisor) and attended OBEL group meetings.
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.
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.
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
