On 8th of June ICONS organizes its 1st Colloquium at ICFO within the framework of the SPIE Visiting Lecturer Program. This funding encourages interactions between student chapters and world-class scientists and engineers at the leading edge of technological advances in optics and photonics.
In this special occasion, ICONS have the pleasure to invite John Rogers, from Illinois University, to give a talk titled Bio-Integrated and Bio-Inspired Photonics.
All the attenders will enjoy this talk at 12:00 h in the Auditorium followed with a Informal Coffee Session at 165:00 in the Blue Lecture Room at the same day.
At the coffee session all the students will be able to ask some questions to the invited Speaker in a relax fashion while having a coffee.
ICONS’ hopes a great success for the events.
Summary: This talk presents some recent results on the development of photonic systems that integrate with biological systems for optical interrogation, stimulation or inhibition and exploit principles inspired by biology to yield advanced imaging capabilities. The former focuses on wireless, ‘skin-like’ devices capable of optical measurements of physiological health and on cellular-scale light emitting devices for optogenetic studies of brain function. The latter focuses on digital cameras with layouts found in mammals and insects to enable fields of view, uniformity in illumination, acuity to motion and levels of aberration that are difficult or impossible to realize using conventional approaches. We explain the underlying materials science, optical physics, manufacturing methods and mechanical designs that enable these technologies, and we illustrate the performance characteristics through combined experimental and modeling studies.
