Dawid Borycki presented a poster entitled Interferometric near-infrared spectroscopy (iNIRS) quantifies brain absorption, scattering, and blood flow index in vivo. The presentation was devoted to explain a new noninvasive method for quantifying optical (absorption and scattering) and dynamical (blood flow index, BFI) properties of the brain. These are ongoing goals of near-infrared and diffuse correlation spectroscopies.
Dawid Borycki participated in var Sovia = new Tech meeting get updates on novel IT technologies provided by Microsoft. Specifically, Mixed Reality devices (HoloLens), Machine Learning (Microsoft Cognitive Services) and computation platforms (Biological Computing).
To support internationalization of PhD Studies held at IPC and allow for an inflow of foreign students at IPC , Agnieszka Tadrzak, the Project Manager at the CREATE project joined Marie Sklodowska-Curie Alumni Association (MCAA) took part in:a kick-off meeting of the Polish Chapter of MCAA (Warsaw, Poland, the 6th March, 2017), 2017 MCAA Conference and General Assembly (Salamanca, Spain, the 24-25th March, 2017).
This conference served as part of the SPIE Photonics West 2017 - the world's largest multidisciplinary event for photonics technologies collocated with one of the largest photonic exhibition.
On the 19 – 20 October, 2017 Dr. Egidijus Auksorius, from the Institut Langevin, Paris, France came to IPC. Dr. Egidijus Auksorius delivered an open for all IPC researchers (incl. PhD students) lecture: “Full-field optical coherence tomography: from micro to macro imaging”. During this seminar Dr. Auksorius introduced several different imaging techniques, beginning with Stimulated emission depletion (STED) microscopy, the Fluorescence Lifetime Imaging (FLIM), which was joined with STED in the experimental system, and then focusing on Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) and Structured Illumination Microscopy (SIM).
Dawid Borycki presented a talk entitled Internet of Things. Building machine vision system supported by artificial intelligence. The presentation was devoted to explain how to build low-budget machine vision system utilizing the Windows 10 IoT Core, machine learning, and custom image processing routines implemented with OpenCV.
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.
Mounika Rapolu participated in the lab visit to BIOMEDICAL PHOTONIC IMAGING LAB headed by Professor Wang-Yuhl (William) Oh at Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology. The Institute is involved in learning the techniques for in-vivo mouse brain surgery protocol to achieve high quality cranial window and imaging with contrast agent intralipid with 1300 nm optical coherence microscopy(OCM).
J. Bogusławski, P. Ciąćka and Ł. Kornaszewski, members of prof. Wojtkowski group spent three weeks at the University of California Irvine on a research visit to Palczewski Lab (part of the Center of Translational Vision Research). The aim of the visit was to build a custom two-photon-excited-fluorescence scanning light ophthalmoscope (SLO) for murine eyes.
