FLIM 2017 Evening Event
FLIM 2017 offers you the option to book a special tour of architectural and aerodynamic highlights, followed by a delicious dinner.
The wind channels Windkanal (“Supersonic Wind Tunnel”) and Trudelkanal (“Vertical Spin Tunnel”) were both built in the early 30ies, as part of Berlin – Johannisthal, the first German airport, that used powered aeroplanes. The massive constructions were used for aerodynamic studies in aircurrents at a speed of 200 kilometers per hour.The whole site of the German Research Institute for Aviation became more famous by the work of architects Hermann Brenner and Werner Deutschmann.
2005 the tunnels were used as settings for the Sci-Fi award-winning Film Æon Flux.
The Windkanal (“supersonic wind tunnel”) was constructed between 1932 and 1934, using the Zeiss-Dywidag System, that had originally been developed for building lightweight planetarium domes. The walls of the supersonic wind tunnel are therefore only 8cm thick. Parts of an aircraft and models were placed inside the long chamber to measure their performance in a speed of over 200 km/h (124mph).
The Trudelturm (“Vertical Spin Tunnel”) was built between 1934 and 1936 and is a type of wind tunnel, used for the research on spins of aircraft models. This study enables improvement of more resistant aircraft designs and is still used in similar structures, for example NASA’s 20 Foot Vertical Spin Tunnel (1941).

Two-photon microscope with ultracompact laser MPM
The 2PM TM is an ultracompact, low-price two-photon microscope for life cell and multiphoton deep tissue imaging. Autofluorescence, Second Harmonic Generation (SHG), fluorescent proteins, and exogeneous fluorophores can be detected. Optical sectioning is achieved by multiphoton excitation and xy-galvoscanning and piezo-driven focusing optics.

Multiphoton tomograph MPTflex
The MPTflex is a CE-certified medical tomograph based on femtosecond multiphoton (two-photon) excitation of fluorescent biomolecules like NAD(P)H, flavins, porphyrins, elastin, and melanin. The extracellular matrix protein collagen can be identified by its second harmonic generation (SHG). Autofluorescence and SHG signals are recorded by fast PMT detectors with single photon sensitivity.
Multiphoton tomograph with CARS module MPTflex-CARS
The MPTflex CARS tomograph is a CE-certified patented medical imaging system based on two-photon excited autofluorescence (AF) and an add-on module for Coherent Anti-Stokes Raman Scattering (CARS).
The endogenous fluorescent biomolecules NAD(P)H, flavins, porphyrins, elastin, keratin, and melanin as well as non-fluorescent biomolecules like water and lipids can be imaged within seconds and with submicron resolution.
