The group 'Multimodal Instrumentation' focuses on research and development of novel application-oriented optical tools, and fiber-optic probes, tailored for specific applications for basic research, medical ex-vivo and in vivo diagnostics, as well as for industrial process analysis. The research covers a range of spectroscopic, fluorescence-based, and interferometric techniques.
Furthermore, the group 'Multimodal Instrumentation' is also exploring and developing novel high-throughput Raman devices for rapid single cells and tissue analysis. This research is aiming at improving the acquisition speeds of current devices by removing the human factor from the acquisition procedure and directly applying multivariate statistical methods during the acquisition, which allows the investigation and monitor of experiments rapidly and in a time-dependent fashion.
Development of optical instruments, high-throughput Raman spectroscopy devices, Endoscopy Raman probes, handheld Raman probes, endoscopic piezo-based multimodal probes, Raman imaging systems, fluorescence microscopy, fluorescence life-time imaging, MUSE, and optical coherence tomography for diagnostics
Implementation of high throughput Raman screening platforms for large-scale molecular sampling of cells
Development of scanning and non-scanning endoscopic probes for medical diagnostics and industrial processing
