The 2-days working visit to the University College London was dedicated to the meetings with several representatives of this Institution, including Prof Andrew Dick, the Director of the Institute of Ophtalmology. These meetings were related to the combined application for the International Research Agendas programme
Dawid Borycki participated in Microsoft Build 2017 conference to learn about new artificial intelligence, machine and deep learning toolkits, provided by Microsoft. Specifically, Professor Wojtkowski's team will utilize new modules of computer vision (CV) in several of ongoing projects.
During this meeting, Dawid Borycki gave two talks:
1.Implementing Internet of Things (IoT) solutions with Azure. The story of this presentation was about the Azure cloud resources dedicated to the IoT. Specifically, Dawid described how to utilize and connect with each other the following Azure resources: IoT Hub, Stream Analytics, Storage, Event Hub, Notification Hub and Machine Learning to collect, process, and visualize data from remote IoT devices, and send alarms to mobile apps.
On the 20th June, 2017 Professor Luyuan Li, Director of the State Key Laboratory of Medicinal Chemical Biology at Nankai University came to IPC. Professor Luyuan Li delivered an open for all IPC researchers (incl. PhD students) lecture on his studies and trends in scientific research in China. Professor Luyuan Li visited selected laboratories and research groups (incl. department of the ERA Chair holder – i.e. Professor Wojtkowski) which was aimed establishing contacts synergic groups supporting the ERA Chair holder and discuss possibility of future cooperation.
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.
Jakub Bogusławski & Łukasz Kornaszewski as a members of the prof. Wojtkowski team took part in a working visit in Laser & Fiber Electronics Group, Wroclaw University of Science and Technology, Poland. The goal of the visit was to discuss the possibility of scientific collaboration.
This working visit took place at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland. The goals of the visit were twofold: a) to integrate a pulse picker into the existing TPEF setup in order to optimize the signal for limited average excitation power and b) to build the optical setup from scratch for two-photon excitation fluorescence (TPEF) imaging of rodent eye.
Jakub Bogusławski as a member of the prof. Wojtkowski team took part in a working visit in Laser & Fiber Electronics Group, Wroclaw University of Science and Technology, Poland. The goal of the visit was to discuss and plan the collaboration about developing and characterization of electro-optic modulators based on graphene. Modulators are fabricated in Aalto University, Micronova Nanofabrication Centers.
Together with other members of the group Jan Guzowski visited Prof. Roland Zengerle Lab at University of Freiburg, Germany. The agenda of the meeting included presentation by Prof. Zengerle as well as by other two group leaders in his lab, namely Dr. Peter Koltay and Dr. Felix von Stetten.
