Welcome to the Optical Science Laboratory (OSL) at Northeastern University. Led by Associate Professor and author of Optics for Engineers, Charles DiMarzio, the OSL is one of the laboratories affiliated with Mechanical and Industrial Engineering, CenSSIS, and the Center for Subsurface Sensing and Imaging Systems, at Northeastern University. The Center is an NSF Engineering Research Center, working toward a unified approach to subsurface imaging tasks. The OSL is particularly interested in those imaging techniques which involve optics (especially coherent detection), multi-modal imaging where light is used in combination with another type of wave such as microwave or ultrasound, and hyperspectral imaging. Our applications include biological and medical imaging, landmine detection, and remote sensing of the environment. OSL's goals are to provide a facility for advanced research in these areas in order to address the needs of our research sponsors, and to train the next generation of researchers for industry, academia, and the government.
