Optical Magnetometry

Working Group 8.21

Development of bioelectric and biomagnetic measurement methods for medical diagnostics


The group "Optical Magnetometry" uses optically pumped magnetometers (OPMs) for the non-invasive measurement of biomagnetic fields and works on further developing these magnetometers to open up new fields of application for OPMs in other areas of medical engineering (e.g. the detection and imaging of magnetic nanoparticles) as well as in fundamental physics.
