Optical Sensor Technology

Improving green energy and industrial processes

In the Optical sensor Technology Group at DTU Fotonik we are working towards faster and better cancer diagnosis replacing a 100 years old, manual biopsy procedure. Hereby we can potentially affect a vast number of people world-wide, by providing cheaper and better diagnostics which is an important step meeting the sustainable development goal of improving healthcare in the world.

The ever-increasing population combined with new and more costly medical treatments for various diseases put a heavy load on modern welfare. Therefore, new and cost effective technical solutions are in need to keep cost under control while supporting improved medical treatment and diagnosis.

The group has developed a new sensor technology that facilitates smarter and cheaper solutions, such as label-free, computer assisted, biopsy screening by combining novel mid-IR, imaging with machine learning.
