Modern methods and resources of laser polarimetric diagnostics of biological tissues

  Infotech Oulu Doctoral Program   Lecturer: Associate Professor Yuriy Ushenko, Chernivtsi National University, Chernivtsi, Ukraine Date & time: April 18, 2016 (Monday), 9-14April 19, 2016 (Tuesday), 9-14 Room: TS267 (Tietotalo 1) This course aims at the introduction to the basics of interaction of polarized laser radiation with optically anisotropic biological tissues and polycrystalline films of biological fluids. Original model of biological layer as a set of optically isotropic and polycrystalline components will be considered. This will allow us to analyze the optical manifestations of both phase (linear and circular birefringence) and amplitude (linear and circular dichroism) anisotropies of networks of biological crystals. To achieve this objective the basic vector-parametric and Muller-matrix methods describing the formation of polarization-inhomogeneous images of biological layers will be considered. Original component of this approach is to use for the diagnosis of the structure of biological layers of the set of azimuthally independent Mueller matrix elements and their combinations, namely Mueller-matrix invariants (MMI). For objectification of the obtained data the fundamental of statistical, correlation and fractal analyses of MMI coordinate distributions will be utilized. The major physical relationship between the MMI and the parameters of the phase and amplitude anisotropies will be characterized grounding on this basis. The obtained data form the basis of laser polarimetric diagnosis of pathological changes (benign and malignant - "precancer - cancer") of biological tissues of human different organs. As a separate direction the physical principles and practical use of laser-induced autofluorescence polarimetry of histological sections of biological tissues and polycrystalline films of biological fluids in various fields of medicine will be considered. On the basis of the principles of probative medicine a comparative analysis of the diagnostic efficiencies of the methods of biomedical diagnostics (optical coherence tomography (OCT), polarization-sensitive OCT, spectral fluorimetry, and others.) will be performed.

Silicon Nanostructures: novel aspects and application perspectives

  Infotech Oulu Doctoral Program Lecturer: Dr. Vladimir Sivakov, head of Semiconductor Nanostructures Group, Leibniz-Institute of Photonic Technology, Jena, Germany Date & time: January 19, 2015, 12-16January 20, 10-12 & 13-16 Room: TS267 (Tietotalo 1, OEM lab) Abstract In spite of almost 15 years of intense research on the formation and studies of semiconductor nanowires, several of the expected, significant, breakthroughs have been reached due to the influence of the nanowires structure. Semiconductor nanowires have been attracting large interest as a very promising approach toward post CMOS nano-electronics, for photonic, for energy and life science, as well as for fundamental materials science and physics studies. This is because NWs offer bottom-up or top-down self-assembly of ordered one – dimensional nanostructures, creation of new combinations of heterojunctions with sharp interfaces, including materials with large lattice mismatch, and the ability to grow semiconductor nanowires on silicon and further integration in silicon technology. The silicon based technologies are certainly favored because of material abundance and non-toxicity at a high level of materials control and understanding together with a huge industrial infrastructure to account for low production/processing costs and high production yields. This paper comprises a comprehensive review of new observation in silicon material grown by top-down or bottom-up technologies which can be useful for the future optoelectronic applications, especially in energy and biotechnology sector.

Learning Architectures for Visual Object Recognition

  Infotech Oulu Doctoral Program Lecturer: Dr. Ross Girshick, University of California, Berkeley, USA & Microsoft Research Cambridge, UK Date: 16th of December, 2014 9:30-11:30 (lecture room TS101) Overview of object detection methodsDeformable Part Models in Detail 13:00-16:00 (lecture room TS128) Deep Convolutional Neural Networks for Recognition and Detection Introduction to convolutional neural networks (basics and history Image classification using deep convolutional networks Object detection using deep convolutional networks Relationship between Deformable Part Models and convolutional networks Abstract: This mini-course will cover advances in visual object recognition over the last decade, including the recent wave of results based on deep convolutional networks. Special attention will be placed on the task of object detection. We will cover Deformable Part Models (DPMs) in detail in the first portion of the course. Then we will shift focus to the methods behind the recent advances in recognition performance based on deep convolutional neural networks (ConvNets). The basic structure, methodology, and history of ConvNets will be covered without assuming much background knowledge. Finally, the connection between DPMs and ConvNets will be discussed, giving a unified view of the two recognition methods. Lecturer’s Biograph: Ross Girshick finished his Ph.D. in computer vision at The University of Chicago under the supervision of Pedro Felzenszwalb in April 2012. Since then, he's been a postdoctoral fellow working with Jitendra Malik at UC Berkeley. Ross's main research interests are in computer vision, AI, and machine learning. His work focuses on building models for object detection and recognition that aim to incorporate the "right" biases so that machine learning algorithms can understand image content from moderate- to large-scale datasets. During Ross's Ph.D., he spent time as a research intern at Microsoft Research Cambridge, UK working on human pose estimation from depth images. He also participated in several first-place entries into the PASCAL VOC object detection challenge, and in 2010 was awarded the PASCAL VOC "lifetime achievement" prize for his work on Deformable Part Models.
