Laboratory of Optical Spectroscopy and Laser Applications

TEI of Athens
Contact Person: Prof. Ioannis Sianoudis

The Laboratory Optical Spectroscopy and Applications Laser has been instituted in recent years, with initially relatively low cost equipment, acquired gradually, either through direct internal funding or through research programs and appearances. Today is a laboratory unit, integrated in the research “Lab Optical Metrology” Department of Optics and Optometry at the TEI of Athens (OG 515/3/4/2015), to support both individual research activities and their contribution to the educational process, building the infrastructure and expertise gained to prepare dissertations and for the presentation of selected experiments for students of different specialties.
Research activities have been developed based on collaborations with research groups within the TEI mainly, but also with universities through participation in a series of joint research programs and activities such as the Athena 2004 programs, Archimedes I, II (5 programs ) & III and a PENED and also participated in a research project proposals within the Thales programs, in collaboration with the NTUA (SEMFE), the University of Athens (School of Medicine) and the Patras University (Physics Department), synergies and complementarity with the “Education and Lifelong Learning” acts of the Operational Program.
The laboratory operates in the topic of Optical Spectroscopy and Laser applications issues on exploring technological materials, medical / biological origin and objects of cultural interest systems, focusing on targeting in: i) Production of knowledge through research, ii) Knowledge transfer through education and training, iii) Dissemination of knowledge through ICT and iv) Application of knowledge through the development of technological innovations.
