Study & working visits
Working visit to Optical Biomedical Imaging Group Institute of Physics, Nicolaus Copernicus University.
The visit to Optical Biomedical Imaging Group Institute of Physics, Nicolaus Copernicus University was to have the deep analysis of the in-vivo imaging of the global mouse brain ischemia (GI) using Bessel beam optical coherence microscopy. This method allows to monitor changes in brain structure with extra control of blood flow during the process of artery occlusion.
Michał Hamkało as a member of the prof. Wojtkowski's team took part in a working visit at the Max Planck Institute. The business trip was organized in order to perform the first 3D OCT measurements of a beating rabbit hearts (in Langedorrff perfusion system).
During the working visit, Marta Janczuk-Richter was conducting research in the Bionanophotonic Systems Laboratory Group (BIOS) led by professor Hatice Altug in the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Lausanne (EPFL) in Switzerland. The main goal of the visit was to become familiar with the preparation and measurements of plasmonic biosensors.
The main goal of the visit was to present the research activity of the Physical Optics and Biophotonics Group to the researchers from Medical University Gdansk and University of Gdansk, get to know their scope of research and search for potential areas of cooperation and common research topics between both the institutions.
The purpose of the visit was twofold: for the new group members to learn the experimental setup and procedure of two-photon vision threshold measurement and to verify the applicability of an existing product of Fluence, manufacturer of femtosecond fibre lasers, for this technique.
During the visit to the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne (EPFL, Switzerland), Łukasz Richter carried out research in Prof. Francesco Stellacci’s group. The main goals of the working visit were 1) to get familiar with techniques of synthesizing and analyzing gold nanoparticles and 2) to analyze the influence of these nanoparticles on bacteriophages (viruses that attack bacteria).
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.
