We are always looking for interested students to join our team!

The main focus of our group is the technological development of optical imaging systems. The spectrum ranges from the design of fiber lasers to the development of electronic circuits and the implementation of our imaging techniques in clinical prototype systems.

Offers for Students

In our group there are almost always ideas or smaller projects that can be worked out in the context of a bachelor thesis, an internship or as a working student. For more advanced students we are also happy to offer master thesis topics. Our current topics for student theses and topics of other BMO working groups can be found below. The concrete questions can be elaborated in a personal conversation.

Offers for graduates

For our projects we are also regularly looking for new graduate students. A general requirement is a diploma or master degree (or equivalent).

If there are currently no suitable positions advertised for you, but you would still like to work in the group, please contact us. We are sure to find a solution for particularly motivated and interested students.

Robert Huber will gladly be your contact person. If you already know someone in the group or if you prefer to talk informally with a PhD student first, you can find the contact details of the group members here.

Beam deflection system using a motorised polygon mirror for optical cohe-rence tomography

Bachelor Thesis

In optical coherence tomography, beam deflection systems based on galvanometric systems are often used to deflect a laser beam in the X and Y directions. These have the advantage that the pivot point is close to the mirrors. However, these systems are speed-limited, which is a problem for modern high-speed OCT systems. Polygon beam deflection systems achieve significantly higher speeds, but their mirrors are located well away from the pivot point.

Miniature drone motors and compact mirrors offer the potential to construct highly efficient polygon deflection systems. By achieving higher scanning speeds and positioning the pivot point in closer proximity to the mirror than conventional polygon scanners available in the market, it becomes possible to overcome speed limitations in OCT systems, paving the way for innovative applications.

The student's task is to select a suitable motor, develop a control system for the motor, design a polygon mirror, and characterize the beam deflection system.

No special previous knowledge is necessary, but a good level of motivation, independence, and good knowledge of the English language is required. Experience with motors or microcontrollers as well as programming experience is an advantage.

If you are interested, please write an e-mail to Marie Klufts and enclose your compendium of all achievements of your current studies.
