El Grup de Recerca en Enginyeria Òptica pertany al Centre de Desenvolupament de Sensors, Instrumentació i Sistemes (CD6) de la UPC. L'activitat del Grup està dedicada tant a la recerca aplicada com de transferència de noves aplicacions basades en el disseny de dispositius òptics i fotònics. La recerca del Grup dona lloc regularment a contribucions científiques en forma de tesis doctorals, articles publicats en revistes indexades, contribucions a congressos nacionals i internacionals i patents, algunes d'elles en explotació. El fet que l'enginyeria òptica i la fotònica són tecnologies transversals que poden donar un alt valor afegit a les aplicacions industrials han fet que les activitats de transferència de coneixement experimentin un fort creixement. El Grup ha estat molt actiu en la creació d'empreses derivades (spin-offs) basades en tecnologia (set en total). Aquestes empreses contribueixen al creixement i la internacionalització de les activitats del Grup.

The aim is to carry out R&D activities and provide innovative solutions in the field of optical engineering. The main research areas are the design of optical systems and sensors, the development of instrumentation, optical metrology, laser applications, colour technology, radiometry and photometry, and biomedical instrumentation.

Recent Submissions

  • Análisis colorimétrico de estructuras de fondo de ojo mediante retinografía multiespectral 

    Burgos Fernández, Francisco Javier; Alterini, Tommaso; Díaz Douton, Fernando; Pujol Ramo, Jaume; Vilaseca Ricart, Meritxell (2022)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    El análisis del fondo del ojo es crucial para prevenir enfermedades retinianas y coroideas ya que la mayoría no causan síntomas en etapas tempranas. Tratarlas cuando aparecen los primeros indicios es fundamental para evitar ...

    Article
    Open Access
    We present recent highlights from the most recent operation phases of Wendelstein 7-X, the most advanced stellarator in the world. Stable detachment with good particle exhaust, low impurity content, and energy confinement ...
  • Reflectance evaluation of eye fundus structures with a visible and near-infrared multispectral camera 

    Burgos Fernández, Francisco Javier; Alterini, Tommaso; Díaz Douton, Fernando; González Alvarez, Laura; Mateo, Carlos; Mestre Ferrer, Clara; Pujol Ramo, Jaume; Vilaseca Ricart, Meritxell (2022-06-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    We examined the spectral reflectance of fundus structures in the visible and near-infrared (400–1300 nm) range for contributing to the medical diagnosis of fundus diseases. Spectral images of healthy eye fundus and other ...
  • Colorimetric analysis of eye fundus structures with multispectral retinography 

    Burgos Fernández, Francisco Javier; Alterini, Tommaso; Díaz Douton, Fernando; Vilaseca Ricart, Meritxell (International Colour Association (AIC), 2021)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    The analysis of the eye fundus is critical to prevent retinal and choroidal diseases since most of them cause no symptoms at early stages. Treating them when the very first signs appear is crucial to avoid vision losses. ...
  • Multispectral retinography in healthy adult population 

    Burgos Fernández, Francisco Javier; Alterini, Tommaso; Díaz Douton, Fernando; Bou Marín, Marina; Vilaseca Ricart, Meritxell (International Society for Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers (SPIE), 2021)
    Conference lecture

    Spectral reflectance of the eye fundus was evaluated in adult healthy patients through a fast visible and near-infrared multispectral fundus camera. Spectral signatures were analyzed for different ocular structures of the ...
  • Quantitative demonstration of the superiority of circularly polarized light in fog environments 

    Peña Gutiérrez, Sara; Ballesta Garcia, Maria; García Gómez, Pablo; Royo Royo, Santiago (2022-01-15)
    Article
    Open Access
    The polarization behavior of light transmitted through scattering media is studied quantitatively. A division of focal plane (DOFP) imaging polarimeter modified with a wideband quarter-wave plate (QWP) is used to evaluate ...
