S10502-N20: Detection Methods and Devices for PAI

Institutions: Project leader: Members Description:
  • The contribution of the physics group in Graz to the PAI research network is the development of ultrasound detectors and their implementation in PAI devices. The general goal is to provide the partners in biology and medicine with optimal PAI instrumentation that complies with their application specific demands. Detector design will involve the investigation of novel optical methods for high bandwidth ultrasound measurements based on photonic techniques, such as optical waveguide interferometry. Moreover, piezoelectric sensors will be employed to design specially shaped transducers for applications in photoacoustic tomography and microscopy devices. The implementation of the developed sensor technology in PAI devices will be a core activity within this subproject and will involve the design of scanning and signal acquisition procedures as well as the inclusion of components and knowledge emanating from the other subprojects.
