Fully Funded Phd in Biomedical Engineering in Netherlands

Position Description: Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a biomedical imaging technique that is used to make 3D cross sectional images of tissue. Current OCT systems are bulky and expensive. In this project we will work on novel technologies that can lower the cost and form factor of OCT. The work will focus on building a handheld swept-source OCT based on an integrated optics platform for waveguiding. Image processing and correction will be studied as motions of a handheld OCT probe need to be corrected for. The OCT device will be tested in application areas such as medical diagnostics and/or forensics. This project is part of the recently started IOP Photonic devices program “Low-cost handheld optical coherence tomography device”.
