Our Research Focus

The computational light laboratory conducts research and development in light related sciences, including computer-generated holography, computer graphics, computational imaging, computational displays and visual perception. We share our scientific output in the form of published articles and papers. Our primary software toolkit to tackle our research problems is public and open-source. We host our toolkit as Odak in GitHub. We translate our scientific output to actual lecture modules, and we create useful documentation for our research and development.
