IMT 02-2022 Master Thesis: Design and development of an MR compatible optical microscope


Institut für Mikrostrukturtechnik (IMT)


Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is a non-invasive imaging technology that uses the phenomenon of nuclear magnetic resonance to produce anatomical images. Magnetic Resonance Microscopy (MRM) is essentially MRI at a microscopic level with spatial resolution in the order of microns. The spatial resolution obtained using MRM is still not comparable to that of optical microscopy. One way to address this problem is to use a multimodal approach where both MRM and optical microscopy is used together to get complementary information. This can be achieved by developing an integrated optical microscopy setup with an MR scanner. An initial setup has already been developed [1]. The goal of this project is to design, develop and characterize an MR compatible optical microscope with an 11.7T MR scanner.
