About

The Imaging Lab focuses on the development and improvement of optical measurement and imaging techniques.

The systems we develop target the applications where microscopy is unable to provide an acceptable response, either due to the requirement for sample preparation (dicing, contact, accessibility) or to cost/performance constraints when depth discrimination is paramount.

The techniques we explore aim at achieving high spatial resolutions and non-invasiveness when probing samples.

The expertise acquired has been demonstrated in different fields of application, ranging from optical inspection of industrial products to quality control and biological tissues.
