fastMOT at the Optica Biophotonics Congress: Biomedical Optics 2024

We are happy to share that researchers from our team have represented our project at the Optica Biophotonics Congress: Biomedical Optics from 7-10 April 2024 at Fort Lauderdale, USA, and took the opportunity to meetup. Find out more about their presentations at https://fastmot.eu/publications/

Busy weeks: Three deliverables submitted

We have been quite busy for the last couple of weeks! By the end of March, we concluded the work on three deliverables: D3.2: Sensor characteristics A Monte Carlo (MC) simulation framework for modelling the effect of real instruments’ characteristics on the detection of light that has propagated through[…]

Interview with Monique Gevers

“Sometimes you just have to take the plunge without overthinking” In our series #WomeninScience, we will hear from the female scientific staff working on fastMOT, telling us about their roles in our project and their experiences of finding their career in science. Meet our second guest, Monique Gevers, Project[…]

First tests on newly installed superconducting nanowire detector

It’s time for the first tests on the newly installed superconducting nanowire detector at PoliMi!  We have started to test the detector on liquid phantoms and in-vivo measurements to see how well we can extract blood flow information non-invasively using the new system.

Interview with Lisa Kobayashi

“Going into tech is a decision that’s hard to regret” We are thrilled to announce the start of our new series #WomeninScience! In this editorial, we will hear from the female scientific staff working on fastMOT, telling us about their roles in our project and their experiences of finding[…]

First prototype of SNSPD system installed at PoliMi

Busy week here at fastMOT! The first prototype of the multichannel SNSPD system was installed at Politecnico di Milano (PoliMi) by a Single Quantum engineer. The PoliMi team was then instructed on the use of the system – now everything is ready to start an exciting measurement campaign!

fastMOT at the IEEE Photonics Conference 2023

We are thrilled to announce that Laura Di Sieno (CUSBO/POLIMI) had the opportunity to present the fastMOT project at the IEEE Photonics Conference 2023 in the vibrant city of Orlando! For more information, see: https://ieeexplore.ieee.org/document/10360741

fastMOT kick-off meeting

For the start of fastMOT, all project partners gathered in Delft, the Netherlands, for a two-day meeting to set the course for the next four years. The meeting not only allowed the partners to agree on several key aspects, ranging from the technical to the management side of the[…]

Revolutionising medical imaging

fastMOT proposes light sensing solution for non-invasive imaging of deep organ structures  With its innovative fast gated, ultra-high quantum efficiency single-photon sensor, the fastMOT project will enable deep body imaging with diffuse optics. Implemented in the new Multifunctional Optical Tomograph, the light sensor will achieve a 100x improvement of[…]
