The "lockdown" paper in the press

Our Optics Letters paper on using quantum technologies to enhance Optical Coherence Tomography imaging got some attention in the scientific community. It was first featured on OSA Press Release website, and then appeared on PhysicsWorld website and website. Thank you again to Dodd-Walls Centre New Ideas Fund for enabling the research and to our collaborator, Piotr Kolenderski, the head of SPA Lab in Toruń, Poland, who provided support on the "quantum" matters of the project.

A "lockdown" paper

How productive can you be during a lockdown? Well, productive enough to publish a scientific paper for example. Sylwia Kolenderska and Frédérique Vanholsbeeck had written up their results on using quantum technologies to enhance Optical Coherence Tomography imaging as a manuscript and submitted it to Optics Letters the evening before the first Level 2 restrictions came into effect. Now, nine long weeks after that, the very same manuscript - OK, not the very same, but of course with corrections made after the reviewing process - is waiting for the publication in Optics Letters. If you are curious what a lockdown paper looks like, you are more than welcome to read it here. The presented res

Abi Thampi joins Auckland Momentum Investment Committee

Congratulations to Abi Thampi, a 3rd year PhD student from the Dodd Walls Centre for joining the Auckland Momentum Investment Committee. Momentum is a national student-led investment committee program, which provides access to excellent advice, connections, and investment opportunities to students and start-ups across New Zealand. Abi’s highly diverse background and research experience will add value to the Committee. In return, this opportunity will give him valuable experience for his career. Congrats to Abi and special mention to Shannon Scown and Frédérique Vanholsbeeck for guiding Abi in his journey.
