Diploma works at Applied Optics


Students on the Master programs and "Civilingenjör" programs (300hp) are required to do a 30hp final thesis for the Masters / "Civilingenjör" degree. Students on the Bachelor ("Kandidat") programs and the shorter engineering ("högskoleingenjör") programs (180hp) are required to do a 15hp final thesis. If you are visiting from abroad we can normally define a 4 - 6 month project.
From Applied Optics we examine diploma workers in optics and measurement technology. Specifically we welcome projects in the following areas:

  • Material optics
  • Optics related to biology and medicine
  • Optical measurement technology
  • Optics in general
  • Sensors and sensor signal processing
  • Measurement systems
  • Measurement technology in general

If you want to discuss a project you are welcome to contact one of our examiners or other members of the staff at Applied Optics.

    • Interaction of light with complex-structured periodical media
    • Simulation of liquid-crystal-based tuneable optical elements
    • Development of liquid crystal systems for optical polarization measurements
    • Scattering of light by regular nanostructures
    • Structural colours: formation and visibility
    • Study on optical vortex and optical tweezers
    • Numerical methods for solving inverse and optimization optical problems
    • Solution of near-field problems in classical electrodynamics


    We also encourage you to take a look at our current research projects in the Laboratory of Applied Optics. If you there find a project area interesting for you we can in most cases formulate a project for a diploma work. Please contact the examiners for further discussion.

    Examensarbete Utomlands


    Det finns goda möjligheter att göra examensarbete utomlands genom de kontakter som LiTH har inom ERASMUS.
