Photonics for the characterization and diagnosis of tissue in vivo: time-resolved spectroscopy in the range 600-1300 nm.

Please note that the job is no longer active!

The study of light propagation in highly diffusive media is a valuable tool to explore non-invasively biological tissue. The photons injected into a point on the surface and detected at a certain distance from it carry information about the properties of the medium in terms of composition of its constituents (light absorption) and its microstructure (light diffusion). The time-resolved analysis of the propagation of photons in the medium offers the possibility to decouple the effects of light absorption from those of light diffusion. Time-resolved spectroscopy of broadcasting media has shown important potential applications in various fields such as optical mammography, detection of osteoporosis and, although at early experimental level, for cardiac surgery. The project is intended to set up a system for diffuse reflectance spectroscopy in the range 1100-1300 nm.

Please note that the full description may be available in the national language since some job boards have their own publication policy. Thank you for your understanding!
