Lien, Lara, Evert, Iterio en Jens , 5 young B-PHOT researchers, supported by B-PHOT's outreach staff Tine De Pauw and Nathalie Debaes, triggered the interest of many visitors with optics and photonics experiments during the ‘Day of Science’ .
In his PhD thesis, Stefaan looked at two different domains in Minimally Invasive Procedures, cochlear implants and endomicroscopy, and researched for each domain how novel fiber optic techniques can help overcome some of the major challenges associated with each.
It is generally acknowledged that a human observer will no longer perceive speckle in projected images once the speckle contrast becomes sufficiently small. However, up until now, no in-depth investigation on the perception of speckle by human observers has been investigated. B-PHOT researcher Stijn Roelandt recently investigated this topic and published his findings in a paper entitled “Human speckle perception threshold for still images from a laser projection system”*
On 5 and 6 November 2014 B-PHOT participated, together with VUB's Technology Transfer Interface, to the TTO Flanders Booth during Creativity World Forum in Kortrijk, Europe’s biggest conference on entrepreneurial creativity. This forum brought together more than 3000 business professionals (CEOs, entrepreneurs, developers, researchers and public sector representatives) from all over the world.
