Max available positions
Biophotonics Group at Lund University, Sweden invites outstanding candidates to pursue a PhD project on biomedical and industrial application of time-resolved diffused optical spectroscopy. The group has recently commissioned the unique photon time-of-flight absorption/scattering spectrometer for analysis of highly scattering (i.e. turbid) media such as pharmaceuticals, diary products and human tissue. The spectrometer utilizes 30ps pulses to probe tissue optical properties and is able to evaluate absorption and scattering spectra of turbid materials in the wavelength range from 500 nm up to 1400 nm. The prospective PhD project is focused on biomedical applications of the spectrometer such as: optical mammography, optical monitoring of interstitial PDT cancer treatment, optical oxymetry at intensive care, etc. Furthermore in close collaboration with industrial partners we work on industrial applications such as pharmaceutical fabrication quality and process control and diary product process monitoring.
