ASG Slow Light - Speeding up Scientific Advancements
Several of the members within the ASG participate in a project supported by the Knut & Alice Wallenberg Foundation which among other things is aimed at developing techniques for spatially resolved deep tissue optical imaging. Here light and ultrasound interaction in the body are analysed using materials where the speed of light is slowed down to 0.1 ‰ or less of the speed of light in vacuum.
This ASG is used as a base for including competence in other medical diagnostics areas like Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), Positron Emission Spectroscopy (PET), Single Photon Emission Computer Tomography (SPECT) as well as for inviting guest researchers in areas related to additional applications where slow light techniques may be used.
