Egidijus Auksorius has attended two different events during this trip. First, he has participated in the “Adaptive Optics Ophthalmoscopy and OCT Meeting”, which took place in Paris, France on 4-5th of September 2019. Egidijus have presented a poster entitled: “Fast and crosstalk-free in vivo volumetric retinal imaging with Fourier-domain full-field OCT”.
Mounika Rapolu and Piotr Węgrzyn, members of the POB team took part in the Siegman International School on Lasers at the University of Rochester, Rochester, New York United States. The Siegman International School on Lasers is a one-week-long program that exposes students to in-depth learning of lasers and their applications from internationally recognized academic and industry leaders in the field.
The main goal of prof. Maciej Wojtkowski's visit was to present a lecture: “In vivo eye imaging. To see the morphology and the function” within a section: Advanced spectroscopy and microscopy methods. The lecture was presented on the invitation of the organizers.
Łukasz Kornaszewski attended a conference organized jointly by Leibniz Institute of Photonic Technology in Jena and a laser manufacturing company, Coherent. The conference name was European Symposium on Ultrafast Laser driven Biophotonics (ESULaB). During three days he took part in scientific talk sessions and presented a poster showing an overview of Physical Optics and Biophotonics Group
The main goal of Prof. Maciej Wojtkowski's visit was to present the lecture: “Two photons in the eye” within the “Atomic, molecular and optical physics, photonics, quantum information” session.
The congress in Krakow was an opportunity to meet scientists from various branches of physics and related fields, physics teachers, representatives of industry and institutions financing research and their implementation, students, and amateurs - physics enthusiasts.
On November, 5 Professor Hywel Morgan delivered an open lecture “From Smartphones to Diagnostics”. The lecture was held under the series “Innovation source”. The whole society of IPC, including IPC researchers and doctoral students, was invited – 49 persons signed the attendance list. This event’s goal was to show miniature analytical systems that exploit low-cost consumer electronics for both sample processing and sensing of samples and above their path to commercialization.
On the 3rd and 4th of July 2019, Piotr Węgrzyn and Mounika Rapolu attended the Be-Optical Final conference organized by and within the facilities of Max Planck Institute for Dynamics and Self-Organization. Topics covered by the conference included Biophotonics, Biomedical Imaging, Cardiac Electrophysiology, and Optogenetics.
On June 15-16, the University of Gdansk welcomed 259 lecturers from the U.S., Poland, Canada, Great Britain, Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands, and France, who participated in the Seventh World Congress on Polish Studies organized jointly by the Polish Institute of Arts and Sciences of America (PIASA) and the Institute of History of the University of Gdansk.
The main goal of Maciej Wojtkowski visit was to present a plenary lecture titled “2 Photons in Human Eye”.
On November, 12-13, 2019 Prof. Alexander Kuhn delivered an open lecture “Unusual approaches for symmetry breaking in chemical systems”. Professor is a winner of an ERC Advanced Grant awarded by the European Research Council (ERC) in 2017 for the project: "Electrochemically induced Asymmetry: from materials to molecules and back".
Piotr Ciąćka as a member of the prof. Wojtkowski's team took part in a few working visits at the Nicolaus Copernicus University. The first visit was concerning the measurements of pupillary light reflex in response to strong infra-red light perceived by the human eye due to the two-photon absorption process.
