fastMOT - Fast gated superconducting nanowire camera for multi-functional optical tomography
ICFO is a research center located in the Mediterranean Technology Park in the metropolitan area of Barcelona, and currently hosts 400+ people, including researchers, PhD students and staff personnel. Today, in its area of specialization and category, the institute is consistently ranked among the highest-quality research institutions worldwide.
ICFO is offering a postdoctoral position to a well-qualified, highly motivated and dynamic young scientist who wishes to enhance his/her scientific career in a friendly and stimulating environment.
ICFO Medical Optics led by ICREA Prof. Turgut Durduran is a partner in "Fast gated superconducting nanowire camera for multi-functional optical tomograph" (fastMOT) project. fastMOT is a Horizon Europe project in collaboration of academia and industry around Europe to scale time-resolved near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) And speckle contrast optical spectroscopy (SCOS) to more than 10,000 pixels to achieve a 100x improvement of SNR compared to using existing light sensors. With our proposed multifunctional optical tomograph we will be able to image deep organ and optical structures and monitor functions including oxygenation, haemodynamics, perfusion and metabolism.
The group will participate in all main tasks of the project and the fellow will be responsible for:
- Designing the specifications for time-resolved speckle contrast optical tomography SCOT) equipment.
- Testing on tissue simulating phantoms.
- Collaboration with industry and academia.
- In vivo testing on healthy subjects for functional activation studies.
