Improved diagnostics with light: Jena research team develops innovative camera probe for precise tissue images
A research team from Leibniz IPHT and Jena University Hospital has developed a new type of fiber probe for medical imaging in collaboration with the Jena-based company Grintech. The camera probe uses non-linear multimodal imaging techniques to generate high-precision images of tissue samples at cellular level.
The technology could thus enable improved diagnostics without invasive methods such as biopsies for a variety of diseases, for example in the field of dermatology and gastroenterology, as well as in neurosurgery or head and neck surgery, particularly in the treatment of cancer.
The research team published the results on August 23, 2023 in the renowned journal Scientific Reports.

Neural Networks Made of Light: Jena Research Team Develops AI System in Optical Fibers
A research team from Leibniz IPHT has developed a technology poised to significantly reduce the substantial energy requirements of AI systems in the future. This innovative process employs light for neural computing. Rather than relying on traditional computer chips, which consist of thousands of electronic components, the researchers use a single optical fiber.
Update on the cyber attack
In the course of the cyberattack, some of Leibniz IPHT's server data was copied and stolen by the attackers. This may also include personal data of current and former employees as well as contractual and cooperation partners. According to our current state of knowledge, there is probably no high risk to the personal rights and freedoms of the persons concerned. However, it cannot be ruled out that the stolen data will be published by the attackers.
