UW Human Photonics Lab

Home

Welcome to the Human Photonics Laboratory (HPL) at the University of Washington located in Seattle. Our goals are to advance the frontier of optical technologies in the areas of enhancing human performance, detecting cancer and other diseases, and guiding their treatments. The HPL has historical ties with the Human Interface Technology (HIT) Lab at the University of Washington where the ideas for the immersive VR pain distraction, scanning fiber endoscope, and the optical projection tomographic microscope originated. The HPL is comprised of three labs within Fluke Hall, administered by the UW Department of Mechanical Engineering.
