For this eighth edition, we had the pleasure to welcome Thomas Chaigne and Hervé Rigneault from the Fresnel Institute. They are from the MOZAIC Team (recently integrated within NeuroMarseille Institute) works as an interdisciplinary research group aiming at unraveling life science problems using advanced photonic tools.
After a brief presentation of the Fresnel Institute, Hervé Rigneault will talk about “Multiphoton endoscopy to study the brain activity in vivo on freely moving animals” and Thomas Chaigne will present his research on “Photoacoustic imaging: towards non-invasive single-cell resolution imaging at large depth“. These presentations will be followed by a question session.

Hervé Rigneault (Ph.D. in Optical engineering in 1993) is leading the Mosaic group since 2000 at the Fresnel Institute devoted to developing innovative optical technologies to address life science applications. He is currently developing multiphoton microscopes and endoscopes that aim to provide label-free (coherent Raman) and fluorescence images in neurosciences and medical applications.
Thomas Chaigne did his Ph.D. between 2012 and 2016 with Sylvain Gigan and Emmanuel Bossy at the Langevin Institute and the Kastler-Brossel Laboratory in Paris. He has been working on combining optical waves control using deformable mirrors and photoacoustic imaging in order to focus light inside scattering media, and investigated super-resolution in photoacoustic imaging. He then moved toward biology and joined Benjamin Judkewitz's group at the Charité University Hospital in Berlin, where he studied directional hearing capabilities in tiny transparent fish from 2016 to 2018.
He is now working since 2019 as a CNRS researcher at the Fresnel Institute in Marseille, where he develops innovative imaging techniques for neurobiology.
