Micro Acoustic and Optics

The research group primarily focuses on research topics related to acoustic and optical applications.

Our main interests are ultrasound solutions (electronics, materials and sensors) for health care, maritime and oil&gas applications; RF acoustic sensors and resonators including Bulk Acoustic Wave (BAW) resonators, Thin Film Bulk Wave Acoustic Resonators (FBAR) and Surface Acoustic Wave (SAW) sensors; and optical solutions (optics for laser projectors, mobile phone camera lenses, statistical optics phenomenon in coherent imaging, efficient materials for solid-state lighting, semiconductor lasers, devices for extreme high frequency (TeraHertz) applications. We are working closely with industrial companies in our local area. We also have strong collaborations with academic and industrial partners, both domestically and internationally. Our aim is to be a critical competence partner for the industry.
