    • The acronym OSMIN is our program:
      "Optical Sensing, Metrology and INspection".

      Our aim is to understand the physical limits of optical 3D sensors, and the information-theoretical limits of algorithms to process 3D data. We apply this knowledge to investigate and build new sensors that work at those limits. Most of the projects are in cooperation with partners from industry, medicine or art conservation.

      Five sensor principles developed in our group are in use worldwide and they are marketed by the spin-off company 3D-Shape GmbH (www.3d-shape.com).
