Two Postdoc Openings at the Physical Optics and Biophotonics Group at Institute of Physical Chemistry, Warsaw, Poland
This project aims to introduce and experimentally verify the authors' original description of physical processes related to the influence of light with partial spatial coherence on image reconstruction in the presence of optical heterogeneity. The proposed research works will allow for a better understanding of physical and technical limitations for imaging with partially spatially coherent light in systems with phase-sensitive (interferometric or holographic) detection.
In this fundamental research program, we would like to solve one of the most basic problems of optics, which is in-vivo microscopic imaging in biological samples. This project aims to broaden our knowledge about the image formation process in the presence of highly scattering media.
The leading hypothesis in this project is the assumption that it is possible to introduce spatial modulation of the phase of spatially coherent light in a controlled way to achieve non-invasive three-dimensional imaging reconstruction with quality of cross-sectional images comparable to that obtained by microscopy with spatially incoherent light.
We are looking for a person with at least four years of experience in an optical laboratory lab environment (e.g. proper handling of bulk and fiber optical components), especially in creating and designing complex optical imaging setups. The successful candidate will also produce and maintain prototype software to control peripheral equipment, data acquisition and data processing.
