Welcome To The Applied Optics Group


In 2002 the Applied Optics group was founded by Prof Chris Dainty with €10M SFI PI Award funding provided over 10 years. The group had a strong focus on developing AO systems for retinal imaging. After the retirement of Prof Chris Dainty in 2012, Dr Nicholas Devaney and Dr Alexander Goncharov carried on the work of the Applied Optics group and focused research on three main areas, outlined below.

We are always interested in hearing from students keen to pursue Masters or PhDs in these areas. Please contact Dr Devaney or Dr Goncharov for further information.
The applied optics group consists of 7 postgraduate students, two postdoctoral researchers and two principal investigators. We have over 70 past members.
