Advanced Magnetic Imaging

Ongoing
The scope of MRI is expanding with the development of both ultra-high field (14 T) and ultra-low field (0.1 mT) scanners not only for biomedical applications

Hyperspectral Image Projector (HIP)

Ongoing
Detecting climate data with remote sensing instruments, providing state-of-the-art surveillance imagery for security and defense, or getting the most out of

Nano-biophotonics for molecular imaging

Ongoing
Biophotonics is at the intersection of photonics and biology where light is used to image, detect, and manipulate biological materials. This project addresses

Neuromorphic systems

Photonic Dosimetry

Ongoing
As part of the NIST on a Chip program, the Photonic Dosimetry project is developing in-situ sub-micrometer ionizing-radiation dosimetry and calorimetry leading

Quantitative MRI

Ongoing
The Quantitative MRI project develops calibration structures (phantoms) and validates quantitative imaging protocols for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)

Reflectance Measurements of Human Skin

Ongoing
The purpose of this human subjects study is to collect high-quality measurements of the reflectance spectrum of human skin and assess the variability across the

SMART Contrast Agents

Ongoing
SMART contrast agent project develops multifunctional imaging contrast agents including nano-fabricated agents that can sense and report local properties.

X-ray computed tomography (CT)

Ongoing
Current work in x-ray computed tomography centers on diffraction effects in micro CT and computed tomography of integrated circuit interconnects.
