Bio Imaging Seminar
June 1 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Only for invited!
Please join DANFIX Bio group seminar with Hans Hertz from KTH!
Hans Hertz, KTH
Hertz was elected member of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences in 2007 and the Royal Swedish Academy of Engineering Sciences in 2008. In 2016, he was nominated to the prestigious Polhem Prize together with his former doctoral student Oscar Hemberg for their invention of Liquid-metal-jet sources. Hertz has worked on cell manipulation with ultrasound, development of laboratory sources for Soft X-ray microscopy, and X-ray microfocus sources. The last research topic evolved into the Liquid-metal-jet source which is an order of magnitude brighter than conventional X-ray tubes.
Title: High-spatial-resolution phase-contrast laboratory biomedical imaging
Imaging of biomedical samples with higher spatial resolution and new contrast mechanisms provides important information for expanding our knowledge on the structure and function of tissue and organs. In the present talk I will describe our laboratory x-ray systems for such high-resolution imaging. The major focus will be on phase-contrast imaging of biomedical ex-vivo and in-vivo samples as well as computational investigations of clinical relevance. If time permits, our attempts towards molecular-contrast x-ray imaging via nano-particle-based in-vivo x-ray-fluorescence tomography are discussed.
The seminar is part of a meeting in the Bio Imaging Group and is only for invited!
