Imaging Physics Laboratory


Welcome to the home page for the Imaging Physics Laboratory (IPL) . The laboratory is currently funded through a research grant from the National Institute of Health (NIH). Please check out the links above to learn more about our group. The IPL is formed with a mission to explore advanced imaging physics and photonics concepts for applications in medicine, bio-physics and material sciences. We believe that our interdisciplinary research can have broader applications both in fundamental understanding and technology development. Some details of our interdisciplinary research can be  found here...

Research key words: Imaging Physics, Spectral x-ray imaging, Biophotonics, Medical imaging, Tomography, Photon counting x-ray detectors, Tomographic reconstruction methods for sparse data, Image science, Image perception, Biophyiscs
