Diamond Optics Group

The Ångström Diamond Optics Group is a part of the Division of Applied Materials Science at Uppsala University, and is headed by Associate Professor Mikael Karlsson. Research in Diamond Optics

Welcome to the Diamond Optics Group

Our group conducts research and graduate education focusing on Diamond Optics for a wide range of applications, including micro- and nanostructuring of preferentially (but not limited to) carbon based materials. 

Our research in Diamond Optics is currently focused on applications within astronomy and life sciences.  In these projects we use own developed advanced diamond micro- and nanostructuring techniques to fabricate diamond optical components working in the infrared wavelengths. We also have expertise in optical design and simulations.
