Scientific Imaging

  • Scientific Imaging -A symposium by Hamamatsu Photonics, co-organized by the CECAD Imaging Facility at the University of Cologne

    Biological research is closely linked to technical developments. The first description of a cell was only enabled by the availability of optical microscopes, giving rise to research areas like cell biology and microbiology. Although the development of optical microscopy dates back to the 16th century, it is still an emerging field with a wide variety of applications, including medicine, material research and most disciplines of biology.
    A modern research microscope might appear as technical behemoth. While the optical principles are the same as in the 16th century, new technologies regarding the illumination, data acquisition and image reconstruction have entered the field, expanding the capabilities of the technique.
    When leveraging an established analog method to a digital technology, many details have to be considered but are often neglected.


    For researchers or students with an interest in microscopy, Hamamatsu Photonics and CECAD Imaging Facility would like to invite you to a symposium about scientific imaging.

    The symposium will consist of two/three talks given by our experts. The first and second talk will deal with the theoretical basis of digital cameras and Hamamatsu solutions respectively.

    In a practical demonstration we’ll compare sCMOS and EM CCD cameras.


    Date: 21.02.2019

    Time: 10 - 15/16 Uhr

    Lunch will be provided
