EOSAM 2018


The EOS Biennial Meeting (EOSAM), a major European event for the European optics and photonics community, was held in the congress center of TUDelft in Delft Netherlands, October 8-12, 2018. Over 400 attendees took part in the event and over 350 interesting presentations were held on optics and photonics. Leading experts from the optical field (e.g. Zeiss company) tutored short courses about practical information on optics design or optimal data processing.

Prof. Maciej Wojtkowski was the Program Committee Member of one of the nine Topical Meetings: Bio-Medical Optics, as a part of this conference. The field of biomedical optics has seen remarkable growth over the past years. Due to a plethora of new techniques such as optical coherence tomography, light-sheet microscopy, fiber sensors, and multi-photon microscopy, we are able to see and sense tissue in ways never been performed before. This topical meeting focused on bringing together researchers working on new fundamental image and sensing system improvements and clinicians that apply these techniques in practice.

Other members of the team of prof. Wojtkowski had the opportunity to present his work.

During the „Microscopy” session Paulina Niedźwiedziuk presented her work entitled „OCM based analysis of cytoplasm dynamics in cancer cells ”

Mounika Rapolu gave a talk on “Imaging of cortical vessels of mouse brain: Bessel vs Gaussian beams”. She had an opportunity to interact with experts in the fields and get new ideas, improvements, and suggestions to proceed with the further experiments.   

Michał Hamkało gave an invited talk „Structural and functional cardiac Megahertz OCT imaging at up to 100 volumes/s” and to obtained broad knowledge about recent novelties in optics.

Dawid Borycki gave a talk entitled: “Spatiotemporal optical coherence (STOC) manipulation suppresses coherent cross-talk in full-field swept-source optical coherence tomography”.
