OSA Biophotonics Congress: Biomedical Optics
My first fully online conference..... it worked well. I missed all the interaction and networking, but it was great to be able to dip into high quality talks in between home schooling..... we had a few talks, I hope people enjoyed them! https://www.osapublishing.org/abstract.cfm?uri=Translational-2020-TTu2B.4 https://www.osapublishing.org/abstract.cfm?uri=Translational-2020-TM2B.5 https://www.osapublishing.org/abstract.cfm?uri=Translational-2020-TW2B.2 https://www.osapublishing.org/abstract.cfm?uri=Translational-2020-TTu2B.3 https://www.osapublishing.org/abstract.cfm?uri=Translational-2020-TTu2B.2
Cheap lenses for smartphone fluorescence microscopy
Good work by Jo, Helen and Katjana (and minimal input from the rest of us). A nice way to develop cheap lenses for use with smartphones....... https://doi.org/10.1364/BOE.381014
A tiny fibre sensor for measuring conditions in the lung….
Very happy this is finally published, it's taken a while..... I think this work really well describes the combination of technologies across a collaboration to do something really nice (and it looks kind of cool!) A few of my notes on the content below: High fidelity fibre-based physiological sensing deep in tissue Scientific Reports, …

Healthcare Innovation and Technologies Festival at Heriot-Watt
Having fun networking at the Healthcare Innovation and Technologies Festival at Heriot-Watt - and the media guy took a nice photo! https://www.hw.ac.uk/about/news/2019/hit-research-festival-opens.htm hit-festival.org PS, Helen won the poster prize again (obvously).....
Ratiometric spectral imaging through fibre to make the bacteria shine…..
https://doi.org/10.1364/BOE.10.001856 I really like this one, tackling a Proteus challenge of making those annoying green fluorophores stand out against the green lung tissue in fluorescence imaging. But green doesn't just mean green, it's all about the shades of green..... https://youtu.be/tn5YsW2TJH8 So, in fluorescence imaging when pumped with blue light, normally the resulting "green" light coming …

Time resolved fluorescence imaging through fibres….
This site wasn't supposed to be just a list of outputs, sorry, got lazy...... But for now, really happy to get this work out. Fluorescence Lifetime Imaging down an optic fibre, at 1fps.... fully exploiting the parellisation of 1024 single photon detectors on one chip. I think it's pretty cool (and makes the bacteria …

A new route to Raman sensing in Vivo with a single fibre
Latest efforts with exotic fibre designs from the University of Bath for miniaturised single fibre probes for Raman sensing, which in the future could enable better in vivo possibilities. Nice work Stephanos. https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/abs/10.1002/jbio.201800239
Combining SERS and bacterial sampling for fibre probes small enough to reach the distal lung
Holly's work demonstrrating a practical solution for fibre optical SERS pH sensing with good signal strengths, also combined with bacterial sampling. Nice to see this coming out in the Analyst. https://doi.org/10.1039/C8AN01322E
Three talks in a row at Photon18 this year from me and my students. Katjana gives an invited talk on time resolved spectroscopy. Helen covers the latest results on multispectral imaging. I give an overview of medical device location with time resolved single photon imaging. Should be fun.....
