Optoelectronics and Measurement Techniques (OPEM)

Optoelectronics and Measurement Techniques unit is specialized in demanding electronic applications.

The unit has a long history of measuring human physiological, vital functions. In addition to development of biomedical instrumentation, the research focus is on biophotonics and optical measurements. 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 printable electronics. There is a production line in the unit to research and produce printable electrical components like phototransistors, solar cells and sensors on the transparent, flexible substrates. In addition, new characterizing and testing methods are investigated for printed electronics materials and components.

The variety of applications has lead to co-operation not only with other units within the university, but also on a global scale. Our partners are renowned international research teams whose experts visit our unit on regular basis and host our researchers.
