Physical Optics and Biophotonics

Principal Investigator: Prof. dr hab. Maciej Wojtkowski

The research in our group can be seen as a perfect interplay between physics, biology and chemistry. We are focusing on developing imaging techniques and using them in many biological and chemical systems. The uniqueness of our approach is using not only the amplitude of the light but also its phase in order to develop new, top-class imaging systems. Optical Coherence Tomography is a great example of such a method. Furthermore, we are implementing the innovative method for imaging distortion removal ― STOC (Spatio Temporal Optical Coherence manipulation), which has the potential to largely increase the quality of imaging through opaque layers, such as skin.

All these projects are aimed to bring to humanity new non-invasive imaging techniques, that will make our life longer, better and with more understanding of nature.
