Fiber endoscope using 3D printed diffractive optical elements for minimally invasive sensing and actuation in biomedicine
Technische Universität Dresden, Germany
Minimally invasive fiber endoscopes are crucial for several applications. The memory effect of coherent fiber bundles is exploited with a diffractive optical element (DOE), printed on the fiber facet by 2-photon polymerization lithography. Results on 3D imaging without mechanical scanning will be presented.

Modelling dynamic 3D heat transfer in laser material processing based on physics informed neural networks
Jorrit Voigt, Michael Moeckel
University of Applied Sciences Aschaffenburg, Germany
Machine learning algorithms make predictions by fitting highly parameterized nonlinear functions to massive amounts of data. Yet those models are not necessarily consistent with physical laws and offer limited interpretability. Extending machine learning models by introducing scientific knowledge in the optimization problem is known as physics-based and data-driven modelling. A promising development are physics informed neural networks (PINN) which ensure consistency to both physical laws and measured data. The aim of this research is to model the time-dependent temperature profile in bulk materials following the passage of a moving laser focus by a PINN. The results from the PINN agree essentially with finite element simulations, proving the suitability of the approach. New perspectives for applications in laser material processing arise when PINNs are integrated in monitoring systems or used for model predictive control.

Sparse mid-infrared spectra enable real-time and in-vivo applications in tissue discrimination
Felix Fischer, Karsten Frenner, Alois M. Herkommer
Institute of Applied Optics, University of Stuttgart, 70569 Stuttgart, Germany
Differentiation of malign and benign tissue based on spectral information can be done by only using a small fractional amount of the original mid-infrared spectrum. An optimally selected arrangement of a few narrow-band quantum cascade lasers provides proficient signal-to-noise ratios and can drastically reduce the data acquisition time with constant discriminability, such that real-time applications will be possible in short-term and in-vivo diagnostics in the long-term.

Synthetic wavelength holography in scattering media
University of Stuttgart, Germany
Coherent detection enables the acquisition of amplitude and phase of optical fields. We use the synthetic wavelength as a computational construct arising from digital processing of two off-axis digital holograms to identify the structure of an object obscured by fog and further increase the imaging range due to the increased sensitivity in coherent detection. Experiments were carried out in a 27 m long fog tube filled with ultrasonically generated fog. Furthermore, we transfer the findings of this work to address the phase distortions in imaging through coherent fiber bundles (CFBs), which could enable distal shape measurement with ultrathin holographic endoscopy.
