Neurophotonics brain

Institute of PhotonicsNeurophotonics

The Neurophotonics research group develops devices to interface with neural systems in an effort to understand aspects of neural processing. We work closely with leading neuroscientists and develop high-end technology using advanced semiconductor processing techniques.

There are three main research areas at the moment:

  • microelectrode arrays for massively parallel recording from neural tissue
  • technologies for optogenetics
  • development of a retinal prosthesis to repair forms of blindness

We collaborate internationally with groups in Stanford, University of California Santa Cruz, and AGH University Krakow´╗┐ as well as groups locally.
