Professor Monika Ritsch-Marte is currently an invited guest fellow at the University of California Los Angeles’ (UCLA) Institute of Pure and Applied Mathematics (IPAM) from 12 September 2022 to 16 December 2022 for its Autumn 2022 programme on Computational Microscopy.
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.
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 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.
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.
Since March of this year, Monika Ritsch-Marte, the PI of the sub-project Imaging of Trapped Particles, is a member of the German National Academy of Sciences Leopoldina. We congratulate Monika for this achievement, reflecting her recognition as an expert in Optics.
