The Department of Information Optics deals with optics, photonics and optometry, mainly researching, designing and producing photonic and nanooptic structures and electromagnetic modeling. In recent years, ZOI has conducted research into optical plasmonics based on layered metamaterials, superphysical imaging, photovoltaics, photonic photons, SNOM microscopy, and optical applications for thruster sampling. Several optical laboratories are available for ZOI equipment. Electron microscope, SNOM / AFM microscope, and electron beam thin layer sprayer. ZOI employees are involved in conducting specialization courses in photonics in the fields of physics and nanostructure engineering and European optics and optometry studies.
