Topic: Biomedical Imaging beyond the visible: Fluorescence Imaging in the Shortwave-Infrared
Date: Tuesday, 14 July, 1:00 pm
Spreaker: Jakob Lingg, GCB Doctoral Candidate, Helmholtz Pioneer Campus / Menze Group
Fluorescence imaging is a commonly used technique in biomedical applications that has been conducted predominantly in the visible (400nm-700nm) and near-infrared (700nm-1000nm) spectral range. In contrast to this, we have taken the approach of imaging at wavelengths beyond 1000nm, in the so-called shortwave-infrared (1000nm-2000nm). By imaging in this spectral window, we take advantage of the particular photon-tissue interactions such as reduced scattering and increased water absorption, enabling fast and contact-free physiological imaging in small animals and achieving frame rates that allow the imaging of freely moving subjects.
