New publication in Nature Communications combining acoustic trapping and OCT

The paper titled “Ultrasound-induced reorientation for multi-angle optical coherence tomography” by Mia Kvåle Løvmo, Shiyu Deng, Simon Moser, Rainer Leitgeb, Wolfgang Drexler and Monika Ritsch-Marte was recently published in Nature Communications.

The subprojects in Multi-Modal Imaging and Imaging of Trapped Particles joined forces and developed a novel strategy for acquiring multi-angle OCT by acoustic object reorientation.

Along with a model-based algorithm to fuse the multi-angle data from a priori unknown illumination angles, the strategy enables 3D reconstruction of samples such as embryos and organoids.  

International Day of Mathematics

«Playing with Math» was the theme of this year’s International Day of Mathematics on March 14th. Several scientific institutions, including the University of Vienna, the Vienna University of Technology, and the Austrian Academy of Sciences, collaborated to explore intriguing mathematical concepts in a playful manner.

Axel Kittenberger and Noemi Naujoks demonstrated how a computer tomograph works and explained the fascinating mathematics behind it. They showcased the Origami Tomograph developed by CSC, which reconstructs a transparent 3D object from light projections. A special highlight was a quiz that encouraged participants to play the role of a tomograph and guess the underlying object from projection data.

PhD defense: Leopold Veselka

We are happy to announce that Leopold Veselka, PhD student in the Sub-project Quantitative Coupled Physics Imaging, has successfully defended his PhD thesis with the title “Reconstruction of optical parameters in quantitative optical coherence tomography” on 9th of January, 2024.

Leopold’s doctoral study was supervised by Peter Elbau, the principal investigator of the Sub-project Quantitative Coupled Physics Imaging affiliated with the Faculaty of Mathematics, University of Vienna. Congratulations from the SFB colleagues!

Fifteenth Internal SFB Meeting

From 27th to 30th of November the annual SFB Internal Meeting in Obergurgl in Tyrol, Austria, took place. SFB members and invited international participants were giving an insight into their latest research and used the chance to exchange ideas on further research.
Fortunately the weather conditions gave the participants the chance to explore the beautiful area surrounding the University Center in Obergurgl.

PhD defense: Fabian Hinterer

We are happy to announce that Fabian Hinterer, PhD student in Sub-project Tomography with Astronomy, defended successfully his PhD thesis with the title “Inverse Problems in Imaging Applications Across the Scales” on 3rd of November, 2023. A link to his thesis can be found here.

Fabian was a PhD student under the supervision of Ronny Ramlau, principal investigator of Sub-project Tomography in Astronomy, at the Industrial Mathematics Institute at the Johannes Kepler University Linz.

Members of the SFB took part in Fabian’s ceremony and presented him with a joint gift afterwards!

We congratulate!

PhD defense: Fabian Parzer

We are happy to announce that Fabian Parzer, PhD student in Sub-project Tomography with Uncertainties, defended successfully his PhD thesis with the title “Low-Rank and Scale-Space Methods for Imaging with Uncertainty Quantification” on 25th of October, 2023.

Fabian was a PhD student under the supervision of Otmar Scherzer, principal investigator of Sub-project Tomography with Uncertainties, at the Faculty of Mathematics at the University of Vienna.

Colleagues from the SFB project and the Computational Science Center gathered in the evening to celebrate with Fabian his successful defense.

We congratulate!

Sixth SFB Member Meeting

From 12th to 15th of September this year’s SFB Member Meeting took place in Wildalpen in Styria, Austria. Aside from presenting interesting topics on and related to the ongoing research, the SFB members gathered and used the opportunity to exchange with their collaborators from other projects.

The evening activities, a very informative quiz organized by Fabian Hinterer and a campfire, rounded off wonderfully this event which was perfectly organized by our member speaker Ekaterina Sherina.
We would like to thank the members for their participation at this year’s event!

SFB goes to the AIP23

In the first week of September the 11th Applied Inverse Problems Conference took place in Göttingen, Germany. Eight of our SFB project coordinators and members participated at this conference. All participants used the opportunity to present their recent and ongoing research in various minisymposia. In addition, four minisymposia at this conference were organized by Peter Elbau, Ekaterina Sherina, Michael Quellmalz and Leopold Veselka.

SFB Members at the ICIAM23

Two SFB members, Fabian Hinterer and Leopold Veselka, were invited to the ICIAM23 Conference in Tokyo, Japan, where they had the chance to present their newest results in the minisymposium under the name “Recent Developments in Applied Inverse Problems”.
Both speakers would like to express their gratitude to the organizers Hiroshi Fujiwara and Kamran Sadiq for the invitation and the warm welcome in Tokyo.
