Advanced Imaging Platform (AIP)

Science tool image

The Research Bridge AIP establishes an integrated research program on advancing imaging methods including optical, electron and x-ray modalities. The platform also covers correlative approaches aimed at combining these modalities to extend the structural and temporal  information that can be extracted from an individual sample under study. Important aspects in the framework of the “AIP” are technical advances of the various imaging techniques, development of novel contrast agents, advancements of preparation techniques and image data processing software for the different imaging modalities and combinations thereof.
