Welcome to the Homepage of the Institute of Applied Optics

In the center of the Institute lie topics of application oriented fundamental research, which is mostly done in cooperations with partners of national and international research facilities as well as industrial companies. ...more

3DO

The group of 3D Optical Metrology is dealing with sensors for the assessment of the shape of three-dimensional objects.

3DO

The goal of our group High-Resolution Measurement and Simulation is the investigation and development of optical measurement techniques that allow high-precision measurements in the subwavelength domain.

3DO

The objective of research of the group Interferometry and Diffractive Elements is the study of new measurement concepts by using diffractive optics.


3DO

Our research objective is based on the development and application of coherent optical techniques for 3D-shape measurement, deformation measurement, and the determination of material properties of technical objects and biological tissue.
3DO

Focus of the group Optical Design and Simulation is the classical optical design of imaging and illumination systems, as well as ray-based and wave-optical system simulations.
