The openNIRS was developed by Alexander von Lühmann in 2013/2014 at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) at the Institute of Biomedical Engineering (IBT) and the Cognitive Systems Lab (CSL) and was then (2015-2018) continued at the Berlin Institute of Technology in the Intelligent Data Analysis (IDA) and the Berlin Brain Computer Interface (BBCI) Group.

To follow the latest neurotechnology projects of the author of the openNIRS, visit www.avolu.net.

Please note that you can find a second open source project for fNIRS diffuse optical tomography at www.openfnirs.org. While the author of the openNIRS project also contributed to the openfNirs (ninjaNirs) project, both are two different projects, devices and resources. We recommend you use the openNIRS to get started with your own fNIRS instrumentation designs with low complexity. Use the openfNirs (ninjaNirs) as an open and affordable fully developed instrument and environment that you can acquire. The openfNIRS project is developed by the Boston University NeuroPhotonics Center.
