Our Lab
Research at USIL lies at the interface between physics, applied mathematics, and engineering. The focus is on the theoretical and experimental aspects of wave mechanics for sub-surface sensing to address open challenges in non-destructive evaluation and structural health monitoring. The main goal is to advance wave-based imaging methods building on recent progress in solid state electronics, micromachining and computer power.
