We are looking for experimentally interested Masters and/or Bachlor students want to do their thesis project on the topic of OCT (Optical Coherence Tomography, with PhD candidate Pegah Asgari). OCT is an microscopy techique that allows to visualize small, sub-nanometre changes in a sample by means of interference. The ulitmate goal is to visualize electrophysiologic Action Potentials in live cells noninvasively, using optical means alone.
The project will involve learning how to operate the OCT system, but depending on the qualifications and interests of the student, it can be tailored towards a more experimentally oriented work, or focus more on theoretical aspects such as data and noise analysis — the latter being of utmost importance for an optical technique with picometre sensitivity!
If you are intested and want to know more, please contact Gerhard Blab!
We are currently offering a masters research project for students of Experimental Physics, or for preference, Nanomaterials Science in our lab (Molecular Biophysics). The research concerns energy transfer and quenching effects observed in fiducial markers for CLEM* and fluorescent labels used in super-resolution microscopy. You will find the full project description and contact details after the break.
