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 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.
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”.
The aim of this visit was to participate in the 159th seminar of the International Center of Biocybernetics: Optics in Neuromonitoring, where Dawid Borycki delivered the talk entitled as: Monitoring time-of-flight-resolved temporal dynamics of optical field using interferometric near-infrared spectroscopy (iNIRS).
The goal of the Speckle2018 conference was to discus and exchange ideas between scientists, engineers and students dealing with the speckle metrology and related techniques. This three-day conference consisted of high-level presentations from scientist from across the Europe, America and Asia, was an excellent platform and opportunity to interact with various optics specialist and have discussions.
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.
The aim of this visit was to perform collaborative experiments with interferometric Near Infrared Spectroscopy (iNIRS) to quantify optical properties of turbid media. During this visit, the novel correlation gating approach was utilized to post-process the captured data in order to derive optical properties: group index, scattering and absorption coefficients, scattering anisotropy and reduced scattering coefficient.
