The online Workshop at the Erwin Schrödinger International Institute for Mathematics and Physics (ESI) has just started. This is a two-weeks event with more than 50 international researchers participating.
In the first week (March, 15th – 18th), we have mainly talks from applied mathematicians presenting results on tomographic reconstructions while the second week (March, 23th – 25th) covers the practical applications of such methods in astronomy and medical imaging. See the full program here.
Registration is free. You just have to contact Peter Elbau.
Ronny Ramlau and Simon Hubmer gave an interview at the newspaper “DerStandard” presenting the mathematics behind the correction mechanism of the European extremely large telescope. Read the full article here (in German).
The workshop is organized within this SFB research program and is centered around the mathematical and experimental problems related to the applications studied in this project, involving adaptive optics, optical coherence tomography, photoacoustics, and superresolution imaging.
The Tenth International Conference “Inverse Problems: Modeling and Simulation” (IPMS2021) has now been postponed to May 22 –28, 2022. The conference takes place in Malta.
We are happy to announce that we are organizing a mini-symposium entitled “Mathematical Methods in Tomography Across the Scales” related to our SFB. The speakers are members and associated members of the SFB.
The 6th Internal Meeting took place virtually on November 30th and December 1st. Unfortunately, we could not meet in person due to the current circumstances but this online meeting gave us the opportunity to be all together in an online room.
In this meeting, very interesting talks were presented from our members and associate members of the SFB. The principal investigators presented the current status of research and future plans. Gabriele Steidl (TU Berlin, Germany) and Glenn van de Ven (University of Vienna) presented their research interests and ideas for future collaborations within the SFB.
Hopefully we can meet in person again in Obergurgl in March!
We are happy to announce that Magdalena Schneider and Gerhard Schütz, members of the SFB, have contributed to a recent publication in Nature Communications. The paper entitled “Unscrambling fluorophore blinking for comprehensive cluster detection via photoactivated localization microscopy” provides a methodology for determining and optimizing the blinking behaviour of any PALM-compatible fluorophore.
New publication in Nature Reviews Physics by Kishan Dholakia, Bruce W. Drinkwater and Monika Ritsch-Marte. The paper entitled “Comparing acoustic and optical forces for biomedical research” provides an overview of optical and acoustic forces to be used for multi-modal imaging.
The article can be found here.
The 5th Internal Meeting and the 4th Member Workshop took place online on September 1st and 2nd, respectively. After the cancellation of the previous meetings due to Covid-19, we managed to meet after a long time (at least online).
In the internal meeting, we had the opportunity to listen to interesting talks from external members of the SFB and participate in special sessions of the collaborating sub-projects. The member workshop consisted of member talks and talks from associated members with potential application to the scope of the SFB. The members elect Simon Hubmer and Ekaterina Sherina as the new member speaker and vice-speaker, respectively.
Hopefully we can meet in person again in Bad Mitterndorf at the end of November.
Otmar Scherzer presented at the Research Newsletter (July/August 2020) of the University of Vienna how mathematics can be used to improve cancer diagnosis. This work is part of the SFB research project “Tomography Across the Scales”. The considered methods have applications from astrophysics to molecular biology.
The main idea (also called inverse problem) is to use tomographic measurements of a biological tissue in order to recover its properties (distinguish between healthy and diseased parts) without damaging it. The created algorithms are tested with simulated and experimental data and the results are promising.
