Ir Prof. Benny C. F. Cheung, Director of the Laboratory, introduced that ultra-precision machining is a technology which harnesses processing techniques like cutting and polishing in the vicinity of 1μm, 1/100 of a diameter of a human hair, to alter an object’s surface so as to equip it with new functions.

The technology can be applied to multiple areas, such as optical and biomedical fields, to develop lenses with myopia management or autostereoscopy functions, and scalpels that produce sharper and smaller incisions. Led by Prof. Cheung, the research team has been conducting a series of research projects on bionic structured surfaces to develop enhanced lenses and 3D cameras.
