Major biophotonics facilities
The Biophotonics laboratory at the Atomic physics division includes:
- Time-resolved tissue monitoring by multiple wavelength time-of-flight system
- Tissue fluorescence imaging using tunable liquid-crystal technology
- Gas in Scattering Media Absorption Spectroscopy (GASMAS) set-up
- Diffuse reflectace spectroscopy set-up
- Multispectral, LED-based microscopy
The Biophotonics laboratory at the Department of Clinical sciences includes photoacoustic imaging, laser speckle imaging, hyperspectral imaging and diffuse reflectance spectroscopy, employed for clinical use.
Monte Carlo simulation laboratory
The biophotonics laboratory at the Combustion physics division is equipped with powerful computers and software for running complex Monte Carlo simulations of light propagation in scattering media.
Deep tissue imaging laboratory
The Quantum information group at the Atomic physics division is developing new technology for oxygenation measurements in e.g. the heart muscle. Ultrasharp optical filters based on slow-light effects in rare-earth crystals are combined with ultrasound tagging of tissue.
