Lunch lecture Sioux Technologies


During this lunch lecture Petrus Bult and Ruben Kwant will tell you what the life of a mathematician at the Mathware department of Sioux Technologies looks like. After giving you a general introduction about Mathware we will tell you about two projects. First Petrus will tell you about a project he did for PhenomWorld. PhenomWorld is a company that makes cutting edge low-cost electron microscopes. These electron microscopes can be used to create high-resolution images of materials and structures. However, their images suffered from an image distortion effect they called ‘flagging’, caused by vibrations in the imaging system. At Mathware, we tackled this challenging problem for PhenomWorld, by creating a solution that significantly reduces flagging and improves image quality. In this talk, we will share the ins and outs of this project, from understanding the problem to delivering impactful results. Secondly Ruben will talk about a project Sioux did for Xyall. Sioux helped Xyall to design a machine which helps with molecular analysis of cancerous tissue. This machine needs to be able to position itself very accurately, and in this project Mathware helped with this problem using automatic alignments, where we used optimization and image analysis to overcome imperfections in the machine.
