Mapping the human brain with advanced optoelectronic fibers and lasers

In the Neural Devices and Gas Photonics group at DTU Fotonik, we develop neurophotonic devices, imaging systems and lasers to become next-generation interfaces for the central nervous system.

We rely on a multi-disciplinary model combining photonics, materials science, electronics and neurobiology towards understanding and treatment of disorders of the nervous system. The main research activities in the group are:

- Design and fabrication of flexible multi-functional fiber-based neural devices based on advanced materials.
- Development of gas-filled hollow-core fiber lasers towards simultaneous opsin-free neuromodulation and imaging of the brain activity.

Part of our group’s activity is also dedicated to applying the knowledge acquired in our research to the development of green environmental systems for the detection of greenhouse and toxic gas emissions.
