News Staffordshire Professor's work selected for publication by world-leading society

The work of a Staffordshire University professor has been selected for publication by the world's leading society in optics and photonics.

Our paper has described the most innovative model of the eye lens, that closely mimics the biological system, is highly accurate and can predict lens changes that lead to change in focus of the eye.

Professor Barbara Pierscionek, Associate Dean (Research and Enterprise) in the School of Life Sciences and Education

Professor Barbara Pierscionek, Associate Dean (Research and Enterprise) in the School of Life Sciences and Education and interim Associate Dean (Research and Enterprise) in the School of Health and Social Care, has had a submission accepted for publication in the December issue of Optics and Photonics News (OPN).

Every year the December issue of OPN selects the best and most innovative optics research from that year to showcase in "Optics in 2020" as part of the Best Research in Optics.

This year, Professor Pierscionek and her colleagues from leading Universities in Mexico have had their publication “Single function crystalline lens capable of mimicking ciliary body accommodation” selected to appear in this special issue.

Professor Pierscionek said: “Our paper has described the most innovative model of the eye lens, that closely mimics the biological system, is highly accurate and can predict lens changes that lead to change in focus of the eye.

“This is a great step forwards in understanding imaging of the eye and for the design of high-quality intraocular lenses post-cataract surgery.”

The OSA, founded 100 years ago, is the world’s leading scientific society for optics and photonics to advance research, knowledge and innovation in optics.

Over the course of OSA’s history, 38 OSA members have been awarded a Nobel Prize in Physics, Chemistry or Physiology/Medicine.
