Biomagnetic Sensing and Processing – Progress Using a Modular Approach, Dr. Tilmann Sander-Thömmes (PTB, Berlin)

23.04.2018 ab 17:15

Technische Fakultät, Gebäude D, Kaisterstraße 2, Aquarium

Open Talk of the CRC 1261 "Magnetoelectric Sensors: From Composite Materials to Biomagnetic Diagnostics"

In the field of biomagnetism the application of mathematical algorithms has been as important as the hardware itself. Traditionally, the hardware (the sensor Array) was based on superconducting quantum interference devices (SQUIDs) and operated for decades without large modifications. In contrast to that the range of relevant mathematical algorithms increased at a steady pace. This was driven by factors such as an ever increasing PC based computing power, new physiological insights motivating the application of existing algorithms, and the development of new algorithms to test biophysical models among others.

After around three decades of SQUID based Hardware, now new magnetic field sensors with the potential to replace or complement SQUIDs are available or under development. The opportunity for new sensors is the consequence of clinical challenges unsolved by state-of-the art SQUID based systems and due to new technology allowing alternative quantum physics based sensors in a small sized housing. These new sensors often have extra capabilities compared with SQUIDs and naturally some disadvantages. I will illustrate the modular approach using the example of optically pumped magnetometers and the signal processing toolbox FieldTrip.

Short biography
Tilmann Sander-Thömmes studied Physics at University of Freiburg and ETH Zürich and graduated there in 1992. He continued to obtain a PhD in solid-state physics at Imperial College in London. Following two post-docs in Berlin he has been working at Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt since 2000 in the laboratory for Biosignals. Since 1998 he is involved with measuring and analysing magnetic brain signals. He is an expert in magnetoencephalography using both SQUIDs and more recently optically pumped magnetometers.

Nanotechnology and Innovation in Baltic Sea Region 2018 (NIBS)

30.05.2018 bis 01.06.2018

Sonderborg, University of Southern Denmark


The International Conference “Nanotechnology and Innovation in Baltic Sea Region 2018” (NIBS 2018), organized by the Mads Clausen Institute at University of Southern Denmark, the North German Initiative Nanotechnology Schleswig-Holstein e.V. (NINa SH eV) network, as well as Kaunas University of Technology and Lithuanian Materials Research Society, Lithuania.

Attendees from industry, academia and politics are invited to enter in a dialogue about the potential for interdisciplinary applications and new products from nanotechnology. 

Deadline for abstracts submission: April 15

NIBS is running on three topical days: motivation, innovation and young researcher. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Plasmonics
  • Functional Nanomaterials

  • Nanotechnology for food

  • Nanotechnology for energy

  • Nanomimicry

  • Nanomedicine

NIBS offers state-of-the-art and stimulating presentations; matchmaking events and a dialogue platform between experienced and young researchers from industry and academia. It brings together researchers and business stakeholders from the Baltic Sea Region (BSR) as well as parties involved in the cooperation with BSR partners to share latest achievements in research, innovative solutions and applications in the field of nanotechnology.

NIBS provides an ideal opportunity to increase your visibility as a scientist, company or other stakeholder in the field of nanotechnology within the Baltic Sea region. You can benefit from an active regional nanotechnology network and get a perfect stage to initiate new projects or start-ups and find new partners and customers, respectively. 

Deadline for reduced registration fee: May 1

Registration and more information about the conference on the website:

Prof. Horst-Günter Rubahn (SDU), Assoc. Prof. Jacek Fiutowski (SDU), Prof. Franz Faupel (NINa, CAU), Dr. Christian Ohrt (NINa), Prof. Sigitas Tamulevicius (KTU)
