OBEL’s research is in the fields of biomedical optics, biophotonics, and optical microscopy. It is conducted at the interfaces of the disciplines of optics, biomedical engineering, biology and clinical medicine. We study new ideas and seek deeper understanding of basic optical interactions in tissues, as well as build instrumentation and deploy it in imaging and diagnostic applications with collaborators in medicine and biology.

Our activities include:

  • theory and modeling of optical techniques and optical interactions in tissue;
  • building and designing optical and photonics experiments and systems;
  • engineering imaging systems and instruments for clinical medical use;
  • conducting collaborative research in medical and biological applications.

We invite you to navigate our research pages to learn more about our research fundamentals, the techniques we are developing, and the applications we are targeting.
