In April, 2017 at the assembly of the Scientific Council of the Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences (IPC) – the ERA Chair holder, Professor Maciej Wojtkowski, and Professor Robert Hołyst, CREATE Project Coordinator, initiated a discussion on prospective scientific topics.
Working visit to Optical Biomedical Imaging Group Institute of Physics, Nicolaus Co-pernicus University.
The visit to Optical Biomedical Imaging Group Institute of Physics, Nicolaus Copernicus University was to have the deep analysis of the in-vivo imaging of the global mouse brain ischemia (GI) using Bessel beam optical coherence microscopy. This method allows to monitor changes in brain structure with extra control of blood flow during the process of artery occlusion. The results showed the capability and sensitivity of OCM system with Bessel beam to analyze brain plasticity after severe injury within a period of 8 days.
Dawid Borycki presented a poster entitled Interferometric near-infrared spectroscopy (iNIRS) quantifies brain absorption, scattering, and blood flow index in vivo. The presentation was devoted to explain a new method for quantifying optical (absorption and scattering) and dynamical (blood flow index, BFI). These are ongoing goals of near-infrared and diffuse correlation spectroscopies.
To support internationalization of PhD Studies held at IPC and allow for an inflow of foreign students at IPC , Agnieszka Tadrzak, the Project Manager at the CREATE project joined Marie Sklodowska-Curie Alumni Association (MCAA) took part in:a kick-off meeting of the Polish Chapter of MCAA (Warsaw, Poland, the 6th March, 2017), 2017 MCAA Conference and General Assembly (Salamanca, Spain, the 24-25th March, 2017).
The goal of the lab visit was to improve the TPEF imaging system by introducing new excitation source delivering pulses of shorter duration and centered at optimized wavelength. New dispersion compensation unit, capable of compensating high order dispersion components was also introduced into the system.
This conference served as part of the SPIE Photonics West 2017 - the world's largest multidisciplinary event for photonics technologies collocated with one of the largest photonic exhibition.
Dawid Borycki presented a talk entitled Internet of Things. Building machine vision system supported by artificial intelligence. The presentation was devoted to explain how to build low-budget machine vision system utilizing the Windows 10 IoT Core, machine learning, and custom image processing routines implemented with OpenCV.
The XXII Biennial Meeting of the International Society for Eye Research, champions the advancement of international eye research by uniting the world’s leading clinicians and vision researchers.
The Gordon Research Conferences provide an international forum for the presentation and discussion of frontier research in the biological, chemical, and physical sciences, and their related technologies.
