Curriculum Vitae

Tobias Knopp received his Diplom degree in computer science in 2007 and his PhD in 2010, both from the University of Lübeck with highest distinction. For his PHD on the tomographic imaging method Magnetic Particle Imaging (MPI) he was awarded with the Klee award from the DGBMT (VDE) in 2011. From 2010 until 2011 he led the MAPIT project at the University of Lübeck and published the first scientific book on MPI. In 2011 he joined Bruker Biospin to work on the first commercially available MPI system. From 2012 until 2014 he worked at Thorlabs in the field of Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) as a software developer. In 2014 he has been appointed as Professor for experimental Biomedical Imaging at the University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf and the Hamburg University of Technology.

Abstract: Large selection-field power is required to generate a sufficient gradient strength in Magnetic Particle Imaging (MPI). Without cooling, the subsequent heat generation can limit the maximum experiment time. For commercially available MPI scanners a lot of effort was put into active cooling requiring space and infrastructure to dissipate heat. In this abstract, a promising power handling for the selection-field generation is presented. Using a pulsed instead of a continuous selection-field the gradient strength can be increased and no active cooling is required.
