As a small project, I wanted to make a home-built photography lens. There are a few boundary conditions for the project: Constructed from off-the-shelf optics and opto-mechanics components to avoid manufacturing of custom parts. Should be compatible with Nikon f-mount (because I have a Nikon DSLR). About 100 mm focal […]
Our paper about HyMS microscopy is featured as a Research Highlight editorial in Nature Methods: https://doi.org/10.1038/s41592-019-0442-7
Our paper entitled “Volumetric Ca2+ Imaging in the Mouse Brain using Hybrid Multiplexed Sculpted Light (HyMS) Microscopy” has been published. We have developed a modular platform named Hybrid Multiplexed Sculpted Light (HyMS) microscopy featuring a systems-wide design paradigm that maximizes the acquisition volume size and speed while maintaining fidelity for […]
COLD microscopy is featured in the “Super-resolution microscopy” Nature Collection as a methodology exemplifying new and interesting applications of super-resolution microscopy.
I’ve written a review article about volumetric optical imaging of neuronal activity. You can read the preview here or the arXiv preprint.
Our publication about COLD microscopy is mentioned as a ‘Method to Watch’ in the current issue of Nature Methods in a special feature Structure via super-resolution by Natalie de Souza.
We were watching the solar eclipse in the United States together with the lab. Here are some pictures of me using one of the most important tools in an optics lab to visualize the sun – an ND filter.
I was awarded a Leon Levy Fellowship in Neuroscience from the Leon Levy Foundation.
I received the Young Scientist Award of the German Society for Applied Optics (DGaO) in Dresden last week.
I will be giving a talk about my research at the BioDIP in Dresden on June 9th in the morning.
I gave a talk about Large Volume Functional Imaging in the Mouse Brain at the Rockefeller University Neuroscience retreat at Stone Barns last Monday.
Our publication about the scanned temporal focusing microscope is part of Nature’s paper collection “Deep imaging of live tissue”.
The latest newsletter of the Max Planck Institute for the Science of Light has an article about COLD microscopy publication. The short article also discusses the background of this work and how it developed from earlier low temperature experiments in Vahid Sandoghdar’s laboratory.
A BioRxiv preprint of our latest submitted article discussing large-volume 2-photon calcium imaging modalities is online. We look into the signal-to-noise ratio, recording rate and power requirements of different approaches and what the implications are for faithful extraction of the neuronal activities.
There is a new version of a video about the Nano-Optics Division at the Max Planck Institute for the Science of Light including parts of my PhD work on YouTube: Biophysical Society TV.
