Study & working visits
The aim of Jakub Bogusławski
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.
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.
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 Ophthalmology. These meetings were related to the combined application for the International Research Agendas program
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.
Jakub Bogusławski & Łukasz Kornaszewski as a members of the prof. Wojtkowski's 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 set up 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.
Jakub Bogusławski as a member of the prof. Wojtkowski's team took part in a working visit to 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.
