Welcome to the Optical Biomedical Imaging Group at Nicolaus Copernicus University, Torun, Poland.

The goal of our activity is to conduct high profile studies in the field of biomedical imaging. The research focuses on the fundamental physical aspects of optical imaging. The OBIG group (former Medical Physics Group) has pioneered the use of Fourier Domain Optical Coherence Tomography in visualization of ocular tissues, and since then the development of novel optical imaging modalities applied to ophthalmology is the primary area of our research interest. Our current efforts are focusing on:

  • Morphological imaging of the anterior and posterior segments of the human eye.
  • Functional ophthalmic studies.
  • Advancements in high speed, in vivo, optical imaging.
  • Development of novel data processing methods.


Our group also supports high level teaching of students of various specialties including experimental physics, medical physics and informatics.


The most prestigious Polish scientific award granted to Prof. Maciej Wojtkowski



We are pleased to inform that the Leader of OBIG group, prof. Maciej Wojtkowski, received Foundation for Polish Science award, considered to be  the most important scientific award in Poland.

Individual prizes for eminent researchers for their outstanding achievements or discoveries are given by Polish Foundation of Science since 1992. The prize honors renowned scientists for significant advancements and scientific discoveries which shift cognitive boundaries and open new perspectives for research, provide an exceptional contribution towards the advancement of our nation’s progress and culture, as well as assure Poland a significant position for undertaking the most ambitious challenges of the modern world.

Prof. Maciej Wojtkowski was awarded in the field of Mathematics, Physics and Engineering Science for implementation and development of Spectral Optical Coherence Tomography into ophthalmology practice.
