Workshop: “Tomographic Reconstructions and their Startling Applications”

We are inviting to the Workshop “Tomographic Reconstructions and their Startling Applications” at the Erwin Schrödinger Institute for Mathematics and Physics (ESI) from March 15 until March 26. Due to the current restrictions, the conference will be held as an online event.

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.

Mini-symposium in IPMS 2O21

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.

Sixth Internal Meeting: Research and future plans!

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!

Winter school “Applied mathematics: as useful as exciting”

Last week (02.03 – 06.03) took place in Kefermarkt the first winter school of the Austrian Study Foundation (Österreichische Studienstiftung). That was the fourth seminar organized by the Austrian Academy of Sciences (Österreichische Akademie der Wissenschaften) with the title “Applied mathematics: as useful as exciting”.

Selected pupils from schools around Austria had the possibility to learn and develop themselves applications of mathematics in everyday life. The four topics where: Financial mathematics, mathematical methods in Tomography, graph theory and mathematical modeling of sound.

Axel Kittenberger and Leonidas Mindrinos (University of Vienna) presented the fundamentals of the Radon transform, its properties and application to tomography. The students made 3D origami objects, image them with a system imitating an optical tomographic setup and then obtain the reconstructed pictures. Günter Auzinger (JKU Linz) addressed also the mathematics of sound propagation. The pupils had the opportunity to answer questions like: What makes the pitch of a musical instrument, what makes the sound and what does this mean for the human voice.

Third internal meeting is finished! Report and pictures

The Third Internal Meeting of the SFB Project “Tomography Across the Scales” took place in Obergurgl (Tirol) from December 1 to 5, 2019. More than 30 researchers participated giving interesting talks and with their fruitful discussions helped the members of the SFB to continue their research in the right direction. Along with the 3rd meeting we had the PI and member meetings where we discussed the progress of the common projects and the organization of the future events.

Presence in the celebration of University of Innsbruck 350th anniversary

Benedikt Pressl and Mia Kvåle Løvmo, members of the sub-project Imaging of Trapped Particles presented part of their work related to the SFB at the events “Campus Tage Technik” in April and “Fest der Wissenschaft” in June, as part of the 350th anniversary of the University of Innsbruck.

Scientists working at the Campus Technik presented aspects of their research (small presentations and experiments) to more than 1500 pupils. Benedikt was the coordinator and together with Mia, Franziska Strasser, Simon Moser, Alexander Jesacher, Lisa Bodner, Nicola Bregenzer and Martin Bawart gave hands-on experiments and exciting presentations about Optical tweezers and Lasers.
