Imaging and Optical Science

Imaging and Optical Science is a highly interdisciplinary area of study that combines expertise in fields spanning optics, materials, mathematics, computer science, and information science. Whether it’s probing a biological specimen or detecting an obstacle during navigation, light measurement in combination with advanced signal processing has demonstrated the ability to reveal information that was undetectable even a short while ago. Among a wide spectrum of exciting research problems in this domain, ECE faculty are currently involved in novel sensing and spectroscopic material design, optoelectronic imaging device development, integrated system and algorithm design, as well as microscopy and spectroscopy related to applications in biology, brain science, medicine, defense and security. Research activities in Imaging and Optical Science reach far beyond the department and the college thanks to cross-disciplinary collaborations facilitated by the Photonics Center, the Hariri Institute, and the Center for Integrated Life Sciences & Engineering, just to name a few. We invite you to explore our research activities, meet our teams, and read about our success stories by visiting the faculty, lab and research center pages below.
