FASTGHOST AT THE LASER WORLD OF QUANTUM 2023:
SPOOKY IMAGING FOR BIOMEDICAL SENSING
1st Public Workshop • Forum World of Quantum • Munich
Single-pixel Detector • Dr. Mario Castaneda • Single Quantum BV, Delft/NLD
SPAD Array • Dr. Massimo Gandola • Fondazione Bruno Kessler, Trento/ITA
The FastGhost consortium of partners Fondazione Bruno Kessler, Single Quantum BV, Fraunhofer IOF, Friedrich-Schiller-Universität Jena, and Kungliga Tekniska Hoegskolan aims to move the scheme of ghost imaging from academic curiosity towards applications by extending the spectral range into the mid-infrared and by making it run on a scanning microscope system. The latest results and achievements from the FastGhost project will be presented and discussed.
MEET FASTGHOST AT THE LASER WORLD OF QUANTUM 2023
Announcement: FastGhost plans to present latest results at LASER World of QUANTUM 2023 in Munich / Germany and looks forward to exchanging ideas with other experts of the quantum community. Meet us on June 28, 2023 between 2 p.m. and 2:30 p.m. on the application panel, listen to the talks and get involved in the panel discussion. Learn more here!

Individual photons and photon pairs shed light on molecular fingerprints
The new research project FastGhost has started. Find out what you can expect from FastGhost:
While we typically do not think of atoms in a molecule as moving around, molecules can stretch along their bonds, vibrate around their centres of mass and rotate around their axes. The frequencies (or corresponding wavelengths) at which these motions occur are characteristic and unique for each molecule, creating what is known as a spectral fingerprint. The molecular fingerprint region of the electromagnetic spectrum (the mid-infrared, or mid-IR region) is of tremendous interest because it provides a non-invasive way to identify and quantify molecules. The partners of the EU-funded FastGhost project intend to manipulate single photons and photon pairs to deliver a ground-breaking quantum imaging system for the mid-IR region targeting the medical sciences.
The three-year project is part of the Future Emerging Technologies (FET) program within Horizon 2020 (grant agreement n. 899580) dedicated to cutting-edge technology research projects.
