Animation 350 years of light microscopy in Delft

Check out this animation with a starring-role for our researchers Bernd Rieger and Sjoerd Stallinga. The animation shows 350 years of light microscopy history. From the earliest days of van Leeuwenhoek to the Nobel prize in 2014 and current developments at TU Delft. 

Imaging Physics

The Department of Imaging Physics (abbr. ImPhys) focuses on developing novel, sometimes revolutionary, instruments and imaging technologies. These research products demonstrate our insight in imaging since they extend existing boundaries in terms of spatial resolution, temporal resolution, and information/data throughput. We are pioneers in developing advanced concepts of computational imaging, a marriage between cleverly designed imaging systems and sophisticated post-processing.

These concepts provide access to otherwise invisible detail or information, which become available only after dedicated computational post-processing of the raw image data. Such breakthroughs in imaging physics often lead to progress in science and offer new information – image to insight – relevant for both society and industry.

Importantly, ImPhys’s profile encompasses a mix of science, engineering and design. While the spectrum of imaging physics is very broad, we focus on a few key fields where – through internal synergy and multi-disciplinary collaborations with external partners – we generate impact. Research topics span the entire range from curiosity-driven to application-inspired, are always academically challenging, relevant to society, and approached from a fundamental perspective.

Key research themes
The four disciplinary-based research groups jointly work on three key research themes in imaging physics with a clear societal impact: Life sciences (instrumentation and computational imaging), Healthcare (ultrasonic imaging devices and quantitative biomarker extraction), and Industry (electron-based instrumentation, optical techniques, seismic imaging). Also, each group contributes knowledge to the shared fundamental layer comprising: numerical and analytical image formation modelling, image/data processing, solving inverse problems, and reconstruction.


Work in progress: Realisation of the VLLAIR Lab

Project Jacob Hoogenboom on electron-beam induced fluorescence superresolution granted

10 February 2017

Molecules such as proteins act together to regulate life. Correct functioning is intricately related to which molecules locate precisely where within a cell, and dysfunction is often linked to diseases. Current microscopy techniques fail to provide a complete picture: multi-colour optical microscopy does not reach the necessary molecular resolution and it cannot image the underlying details of...Lees verder
