The focus areas are classical optical design of imaging and illumination systems, as well as ray-based and wave-optical system simulations. Main research targets are the development of novel tools for simulation and optimization and the design of innovative complex optical systems for industrial or medical purposes.
One of the personal fields of competence lies in medical technology, where several lectures and the focus subject "Optics in Medical Technology" in the degree courses Medical Technology B.Sc. and M.Sc. are offered.
