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 lab visit under CREATE project took place at the Max Planck Institute for Biochemistry, in the group of Prof. Petra Schwille. During the two-week stay Łukasz Piątkowski worked together with Dr Henri Franquelim, a senior Postdoc specialized in studies of mechanical properties of lipid bilayers.
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.
Professor Krzysztof Palczewski visited the Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences (IPC PAS) under a series of cyclical lectures on interdisciplinary emerging research. The visit took place between 19-20 June 2018 and included planned seminar lecture and several meetings. It was opened with a short welcoming meeting organized by the Director of IPC PAS, to get a general overview of the Institute.
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.
Dawid Borycki participated in the Microsoft Build 2018 conference. The aim of this visit was to learn about new software technologies used in Professor Wojtkowski lab. Dawid was particularly interested in the artificial intelligence for computer vision and the intelligent edge.
Julia Sudyka participated in the EGAS'50 (The European Group on Atomic Systems) conference that took place in Krakow. The conference topics are atomic, molecular and optical physics. She presented a poster entitled “Optically induced Bloch-Siegert shift in magneto-optical resonances ”.
Dawid Borycki participated in the Optical Society of America (OSA) Biophotonics Congress Biomedical Optics. The main aim of this visit was to give a talk entitled Correlation gating quantifies optical properties of dynamic media in transmission mode.
Piotr Ciąćka as a member of the prof. Wojtkowski team took part in a few working visits at the Nicholas Copernicus University. First visit was concerning the measurements of pupillary light reflex in response to strong infra-red light perceived by the human eye due to two-photon absorption process.
