Experimental Mechanics

Experimental Mechanics is involved in the development of several of the strong research and innovation areas within Luleå University of Technology and is strongly engaged in physics oriented courses within the Engineering programs.

The research at the subject is of both fundamental and applied character. The fundamental issues concern questions about the fingerprints left by photon matter interactions on the information content in optical signals, how the information can be acquired and processed efficiently, as well as methodologies to use these fingerprints experimentally. Some of the applied questions concern robustness of optical techniques when integrated in an industrial environment. More information is found under the headings Research and Publications to the left.

The core part of our undergraduate teaching is performed within the engineering programs at LTU where the subject is responsible for the teaching in optics and experimental methods. On the graduate level the division gives courses in physical and applied optics as well as experimentally oriented courses and a course in scientific communication.
