  • About

    Professor Schotland’s research is focused on theoretical optical physics with applications to biomedical imaging and nano-optics. Areas of current interest include optical tomography, optical imaging of nanoscale systems, and the use of quantum states of light for optical imaging. Inverse problems, particularly inverse scattering problems, are a unifying theme that connects these areas.
