  • Conformational switching experiments in Paderborn
Localisation and tracking of components in self-assembling systems

The goal of this project is to apply computer vision techniques to track the growth of structures in self-assembling systems. The ability to track the growth of structures will shed light on the dynamics of self-assembly; an aspect of self-assembly that has not been well researched in the macroscopic context.

As part of the project, the student will have to: (a) find suitable hardware (combination of camera, lens, lighting, etc.), (b) localise multiple components in an environment, (c) track the components in the environment, and (d) track the assembly of components in the environment.

Required skills: the candidates should be acquainted with C++ programming and have a working knowledge of the English language.
