OPEN POSITION: PHOTONICS RESEARCH GROUP
Application is open until 22nd march 2015
Expected incorporation date: JUNE 2015
The grant is aimed to support Research and Development tasks in the Photonic Research Group (GROC) at Universitat Jaume I in Castelló, Spain. GROC is a young and active
research team in the field of photonics with 6 permanent staff members and, currently, 1 postdoc, 7 doctorate students, and several master and undergraduate students.
We offer a position in BIOPHOTONICS to carry out research within the project “imaging through turbid media (VIMET)”. The project is aimed to increase the penetration depth of light-driven imaging modalities in highly scattering media. At the near infrared, scattering reversal is recognised as a major challenge for the application of photonics processes in biomedical fields. However, using techniques adapted from astronomy, physicists are finding ways to see through opaque materials such as living tissue. See for instance the article Z. Merali, “Super Vision”, Nature 518, 158-160, 12 February 2015.
Our approach to “see through scattering” is based on the use of a digital micromirror array which enables fast light structuring and detection with a very sensitive single-pixel sensor. Algorithms based on compressive sensing (CS) are used to retrieve a high-resolution image at shallow depth penetration.
