Imaging Quantum Phenomena

Plenary Speaker: Professor Roland Wiesendanger (University of Hamburg, DE)

Theme will cover:

  • Quantum microscope
  • Phonon imaging
  • Plasmon mapping and plasmon-enhanced fluorescence spectroscopy
  • Quantum materials (skyrmions, vortices, strongly correlated, spin-orbit, etc.)
  • Vortex beams
  • Scanning tunneling microscopy and spin-polarized STM

Live and Fast Super-resolution - Frontiers in Imaging of Ultrafast Processes

Plenary Speaker: Professor Claus Ropers (Universität Göttingen, DE)

Theme will cover:

  • Super-resolution STED and Minflux Tracking of Fluorescent Molecules
  • Camera (Direct Electron Detector)
  • Super-resolution structured illumination microscopy and multispot-iSIM (Instant Structured Illumination Microscopy)
  • Single Molecule localization (STORM, dSTORM, PALM, etc.)
  • Dynamics and temporal correlation (FCS, FCCS, RICS)
  • Swept confocally-aligned planar excitation (SCAPE) microscopy for high-speed volumetric imaging of behaving organisms: Resolution is nothing, if your sample moves faster than you can image it. Speed is the challenge.

  • Multidimensional diffraction imaging
  • Developments in Scanning probe electron diffraction (/TKD/EBSD /Scanning CBED)
  • Ultrafast dynamical TEM studies of processes in materials
  • Detector technology
  • Ultrafast dynamics

Artificial Intelligence in Big Data Analysis, and Computational Microscopy

Plenary Speaker: Professor Moritz Helmstaedter (Max Planck Institute for Brain Research, Frankfurt, DE)

Theme will cover:

  • Quantitative analysis of microscopy data and microscopy automation
  • Compression, Image Processing, Data Analysis, Pattern Recognition, Machine Learning
  • "Processing Big Data": All applications where Image analysis is not the cherry, but the cake. Lightsheet in dev biol, FIB-SEM, SP CryoEM, HTS, HCS, all types of High-content microscopy techniques that yield data that requires community efforts to provide analysis solutions and generate a result
  • Compressed sensing
  • Big data mining
  • Modelling and simulation: how physical processes give rise to the signals (images, spectra, datasets in general) that we acquire and want to process
