Background information

Final year student currently studying for an MEng in Electronicn and Microelectronic Systems Engineering at UMIST. My third year project was to create the scanning head for a non-intrusive system for mapping blood vessels in a human arm using near infrared light. A collimated beam of light was shone onto the scan site, and the diffused light was guided back to the scanner head, conditioned and sent to a processor. Blood vessels caused absorption of much of the light, resulting in smaller voltages. Academic fields of interest include digital system design, systems integration, software design and networking.
