Available student project - 3D imaging of organic and inorganic materials

Research fields

  • Photonics, Lasers and Nonlinear Optics
  • Biophysics

Project details

This industry funded project develops a multi-modal scientific instrument capable of mapping 3D images of biological and inorganic sample material.  This instrument combines different optical techniques based on the physics and manipulation of light, such as optical coherence tomography and confocal microscopy, to yield a data rich profile of sample properties.  It will provide training for a broad range of expertise, including imaging optics, optical interferometry, microscopy, image processing, field programmable gate array programming, digital signal processing and mechatronic control.

This project is well resourced, exciting and fast paced.  It involves working closely with our commercial partner towards an industrial outcome with substantial impact.
