· Monitoring and diagnosis using large-area sensors: NIR imagers for clinical patient monitoring and diagnosis of diseases

Near Infrared imaging (NIR) is used for a wide range of applications in the healthcare domain. At TNO Holst Centre, we have developed a NIR imaging technology that has unique capabilities compared to current commercially available solutions. Our technology allows for large-area arrays of sensors in monitoring in point-of-care diagnosis and remote settings. Moreover, our sensors can be placed anywhere on the body, provide higher comfortability for the patient, and can be integrated in sensing platforms. These benefits open the possibility for new applications, and can improve patient diagnosis and monitoring in current applications.

· Monitoring and diagnosis using large-area sensors: Conformal high energy radiation detectors for medical imaging

In this talk we will introduce our high energy radiation detectors, used in a variety of medical X-ray applications and hadron cancer therapy. We will highlight the advantages of flexible detectors that open up diagnostic applications, and discuss TNO Holst Centre’s recent progress in perovskite-based direct conversion detectors, spectral X-ray detectors, dark field X-ray and large area detectors for quality assurance in hadron therapy.

Meet the speakers

Dr. Daniel Tordera, Senior Researcher

Daniel Tordera is a Senior Researcher at TNO Holst Centre working on image sensors and leading the development on near infrared photodetector solutions. He received his PhD in Nanotechnology at the University of Valencia in 2014, where he studied organic electronic systems based on ionic materials for light emission. He was CEO of Lec-Val Lighting, a spin-off created to commercialize the results obtained during his PhD. Subsequently, he spent two years as a postdoctoral researcher at Linköping's University in the field of optics and plasmonics for energy and sensing applications. His research interests are in the topics of imaging for biometrics and healthcare applications.
