August promises to be an eventful month for CNBP. On the 6th of August, Ewa established a new collaboration with ETH in the area of SPAD arrays. These devices have applications for real-time fluorescence lifetime imaging. The idea is to use them as a version of Google glass for surgeons, enabling them to see the operation in a totally new light with molecular contrast.
On the 7th of August we obtained our first collaborative results from our joint work with Professor Rainer Heitzmann from our partner institution, IPHT. We used nanorubies developed by the Macquarie team (Zvyagin, Goldys, Sreenivasan, Wan) to carry out superresolution imaging in Rainer’s laboratory. The results are truly spectacular
