The purpose of this business trip was to perform collaborative work on the interferometric near-infrared spectroscopy (iNIRS). More specifically, experiments to quantify optical properties in dynamic media were performed. Then, the data was processed numerically using the new method of correlation gating to separate ballistic and scattered light transmitted through thick samples.
On the 19 – 20 October, 2017 Dr. Egidijus Auksorius, from the Institut Langevin, Paris, France came to IPC. Dr. Egidijus Auksorius delivered an open for all IPC researchers (incl. PhD students) lecture: “Full-field optical coherence tomography: from micro to macro imaging”. During this seminar Dr. Auksorius introduced several different imaging techniques, beginning with Stimulated emission depletion (STED) microscopy, the Fluorescence Lifetime Imaging (FLIM), which was joined with STED in the experimental system, and then focusing on Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) and Structured Illumination Microscopy (SIM).
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.
On the 20 – 21 Oct., 2016 Professor Pavel Jungwirth from the Institute of Organic Chemistry and Biochemistry of the Czech Academy of Sciences came to IPC. On the first day Professor Jungwirth delivered an open for all IPC researchers (incl. PhD students) lecture: “Exploring Hydrated Electrons in Non-Conventional and Conventional Ways: From Alkali Metal Explosions to Non-Explosive Ways”. The lecture was aimed at stimulating creativity and curiosity of the IPC society as regards to selected research topics and drawing inspiration for research from everyday life.
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.
Innovation Source: The Israeli start-ups’ eco-system - How to commercialize technologies from the Academia?
The first open lecture under a series of “Innovation source” was held on the 26th Oct., 2016 at the Institute of Physical Chemistry PAS (IPC). The purpose of the above series of lectures is to update scientists’ knowledge of current technological trends and innovation in chemistry-related sectors, as well as establishment of relations with business.
The main goal of Łukasz Richter trip was lab visit in group of Prof. Howard A. Stone at Princeton University (NJ, USA). In collaboration with Paweł Żuk from Prof. Stone lab they recently started theoretical analysis of results obtained during his research internship at Centre de Recherche Paul Pascal in Bordeaux, where Łukasz used surface forces apparatus (SFA).
