Institute for Human Centered Engineering – Optics Laboratory

Our know-how covers the fields of optical metrology, opto-mechanical and opto-electronic design as well as modern image acquisition systems with corresponding signal and image processing.

Our Laboratory

Our competence in optical hardware design is implemented in the field of optical coherence tomography (OCT). Both spectrometer and swept source based OCT systems of the latest generation with different wavelengths, resolutions and velocities are available for feasibility studies.


We offer our industrial partners research and development projects with the following cooperation models:

  • Technology consulting
  • Feasibility studies in the context of student theses
  • Production and characterization of prototypes
  • R&D in the context of Innosuisse or EUROSTARS projects


Our main specialties are: 

  • Optical Coherence Tomography
  • Optical Sensors 
  • Optical metrology 
  • Signal and image processing
  • Design of spectrometer


Our special laboratory equipment can be used by SMBs so you don't have to invest in equipment you rarely use:

  • OCT systems (800nm-1500nm)
  • NDK Ultra wideband source (450nm -2300)
  • Various spectrometers, OSA
  • Power meters, wave front sensor, etc.
  • Eye-safety (Laserbee) 
  • zemax


Contact us or meet our technical experts at various events in a direct conversation. Collaboration results in a win-win situation for everyone involved: your company, society and the university of applied sciences
