The laboratory has a long history of measuring human physiological activity with different optical modalities. In addition to development of biomedical instrumentation, the research focus is on optical imaging and monitoring. One of the focus areas is to study light-matter interactions of biological tissues as well as fabrication and characterization of tissue mimicking phantoms. A growing research topic is the use of nanoparticles in biophotonic applications.
An actively developing area is electronic testing, where embedded testing techniques are researched. This resulted in design of short-range devices enabling wireless ubiquitous remote monitoring of different physical parameters of constructions and mechanisms. In addition, new testing methods are investigated for printed electronics materials and components. The laboratory enjoys hosting EMC-facilities of the University of Oulu.
