Welcome to Applied Optics Lab (AOL) led by Prof. Rongguang Liang at College of Optical Sciences, The University of Arizona.

The research in AOL specializes in optical engineering and biomedical optical imaging. In the field of optical engineering we focus on:

  1. optical system development
  2. freeform optics: design fabrication, and testing
  3. optical metrology and 3D imaging
  4. computational imaging
  5. advanced imaging technologies

In biomedical optical imaging, we concentrate on:

  1. novel optical imaging techniques and devices for clinical applications
  2. advanced biomedical optical imaging techniques and device for biomedical research

The applied research in AOL provides the hands-on opportunities to develop problem solving skills in developing novel optical solutions, including concept generation, system design, lens design, optics fabrication, testing, and system evaluation.
