Optically pumped magnetometers - The future of magnetoencephalography?

Talk by Fan Wang, Ph.D., Senior Engineer, Institute of Biophysics, Chinese Academy of Sciences

A Chinese collaborator, Fan Wang, is visiting and will give a presentation at 10.00 on Tuesday 13th of August. Fan Wang is managing the magnetoencephalography (MEG) scanner at the Institute of Biophysics, Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) in Beijing. Fan Wang has extensive experience on MEG and the combination of MEG with other neuroimaging modalities. His presentation will be concerned with a new system being developed at CAS based on optically pumped magnetometers (OPM). OPM's are magnetic sensors with sensitivities approaching those of the super conducting quantum interference devices (SQUID) used in traditional MEG scanners. However, in contrast to SQUID which need to be cooled with liquid helium, OPM's operate near room temperature and are consequently much less expensive to maintain and can be mounted very close to the head.

Everyone is welcome!
