Yunfeng Nie (VUB) obtained her Master’s degree in Optical Engineering in July 2012 at the University of Chinese Academy of Sciences in China. Her research interests focuses on optical design, computational imaging, optical modelling and optical manufacturing.
Within the ADOPSYS project she will explore novel numerical and analytic approaches based on Fermat's principle to allow the design of N free-form surfaces that couple more than 2 ray-bundles. In addition, diffractive micro-structures will be studied for broadband performance. The target application areas are machine vision and imaging systems for inspection and safety.
