Prof. DiMarzio is associate professor in Electrical and Computer
Engineering, and in Mechanical and Industrial Engineering at
Northeastern University. He is affiliated with the Biomedical
Engineering Program and the Gordon Center for Subsurface Sensing and
Imaging Systems (CenSSIS). He is available for consulting on optical
instrumentation, particularly for biomedical and remote-sensing
He is available for consulting an average of one day per week
during the academic year from September through April, and more
frequently during the summer months.
He has 14 years of industrial experience in optical systems
engineering at Raytheon Company, primarily with Doppler laser radar,
and continues to work closely with industry through his affiliation
with research centers at Northeastern.
His industrial expertise includes
- Analysis of optical system requirements (wavelength, optics size, source
- Top-level system design,
- Computational modeling of optical systems,
- Development of test plans,
- Evaluation of system performance (SNR, resolution, etc.),
- Integration of optical instrumentation into larger systems,
- Physics-based data analysis,
- Customized optics education.
- authored a
Optics for Engineers,
- co-authored a book chapter on confocal
microscopy, Chapter 25 in
of Biomedical Optics,
- authored or co-authored...
- approximately 50 journal publications,
- 100 conference proceedings,
- 60 other talks, and
- 13 patents.
He holds the following degrees:
- BS in Engineering Physics from the University of Maine,
- MS in Physics from WPI, and
- Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from Northeastern University.
Much of his research is focused on
Application areas include imaging of
- coherent detection, including optical quadrature microscopy for
imaging phase-only objects,
- multi-modal microscopy using confocal, multiphoton,
harmonic-generation, and phase techniques, and
- the interaction of imaging modes such as light and sound, or
light and heat.
The research includes computational modeling, design and
fabrication of experimental hardware, and processing of data.
