Study & working visits
Łukasz Kornaszewski, Jakub Bogusławski and Piotr Ciąćka, POB group members, visited the group collaborators in the field of human two-photon vision studies. Researchers wanted to examine thoroughly the experimental setup which is complicated and on high level of automation.
The aim of Jakub Bogusławski visit at Laser & Fiber Electronics Group at Wrocław University of Science and Technology was twofold. The first goal was to study graphene-based electro-optical modulators fabricated at Aalto University.
Marcin Marzejon visited the Institute of Physics NCU to measure two-photon vision threshold values. During his visit, two subjects suffering from cataracts were investigated. For every subject, measurements of visual acuity test and visual field test were performed.
Piotr Ciąćka as a member of the prof. Wojtkowski team took part in a few working visits at the Nicholas Copernicus University. First visit was concerning the measurements of pupillary light reflex in response to strong infra-red light perceived by the human eye due to two-photon absorption process.
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
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.
Main goal of reported trip was a study visit to Optical Biomedical Engineering Laboratory at the University of Western Australia. Karol Karnowski met there with prof. Barry Cense (local group supervisor) and attended OBEL group meetings.
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.
