The Optical Radiation Metrology Lab successfully developed an optical phantom to simulate the optical property of human skin as well as the layer structures of the epidermis and dermis. The optical phantom can be used as reference for Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) and Reflectance Confocal Microscopy (RCM) in cosmetics and dermatological diagnostics.
Measurement for additive manufacturing is a new focus of Optical Radiation Metrology Lab. We started a project on accurate in-situ monitoring and adaptive close loop feedback control for additive manufacturing process recently. In this project, we will develop the characterization method for the additive manufacturing materials, and the monitoring tools, eg. power meters and CCD cameras, in process monitoring.
The Optical Radiation Metrology Lab is responsible for the development, maintenance and dissemination of Singapore’s national measurement standards for radiometry, photometry, spectrophotometry and fiber optics to ensure all relevant measurements are traceable to SI units in Singapore. With these capabilities, the lab provides traceable calibration and measurement services to the industries. Beyond measurement traceability dissemination, it also aims to advance measurement technologies in optical radiation metrology. These measurement technologies open up opportunities for R&D and manufacturers in industry.
