Study & working visits
Witold Postek, PhD, visited the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard in Cambridge , MA in the USA for three weeks. The goal of the visit was to learn a novel droplet-based method developed at the Broad Institute. The method uses three fluorescent dyes in a range of concentrations.
Jakub Bogusławski visited the Centre for Translational Vision Research, University of California Irvine in Irvine, CA. Scientific aim of this visit was to continue the development of two-photon excited fluorescence scanning laser ophthalmoscope (TPEF SLO) for eye imaging.
14 – 15 Nov. 2019 Jadwiga Milkiewicz visited a laboratory at Faculty of Physics and Astronomy at Nicolas Copernicus University in Toruń. The main goal of this visit was to accquinte with the new two-photon microperymetrii – technique which is mapping the sensitivity of the eye photoreceptors using IR radiation.
22 Nov. 2019 Jadwiga Milkiewicz took part in preclinical tests in Oculomedica in Bydgoszcz. Thanks to this visit she became more familiar with the procedures and difficulties related to preclinical tests. The main goal of the research was to compare the one-photon and two-photon vision for patients with cataracts, using an apparatus constructed by dr Katarzyna Komar.
Jakub Bogusławski visited Faculty of Materials Science and Ceramics at AGH University of Science and Technology. The aim of this trip was to fabricate a saturable absorber based on antimony telluride on the surface of active Tm:KLuW waveguide.
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.
Karol Karnowski visited the John Paul II Upper Silesian Child Health Centre. The main goal was to initiate the collaboration with clinicians from the Department of Surgery and Urology. Karol presented his previous results related to Polarization Sensitive Optical Coherence Tomography and its applications in biomedical imaging.
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.
