Universidade do Minho

Brief Bio

Manuel F. M. Costa hold a PhD degree in Science (Physics) from the University of Minho (Portugal) were he works since 1985 at its Physics Department teaching and performing applied research in optical dimensional metrology, image processing, fiber optics, optometry, optical and optometric instrumentation, and on physics science and technology education and scientific literacy. Presented over three hundred invited, oral or poster communications in international meetings and published around the same number of scientific papers, monographs and books. He is editor or member of the editorial board of several scientific and educational international journals. He organised and acted as chairperson on eighteen international conferences and on over forty summer schools and workshops as well as European teacher training courses. Supervised nearly thirty master and PhD students in varied fields ranging from optical dimensional metrology and biomedical diagnosis to solgel and nanoparticles production and characterization or physics and science and technology teaching and learning. He organised and delivered countless outreach activities in different countries. He is member of the Scientific Advisory Board of the European Optical Society, member of the Board of the Iberoamerican Optics Network, RIAO, and member of the Board of Stakeholders of PHOTONICS’21. He act as president of the Hands-on Science Network, of the Portuguese Territorial Committee of the International Commission for Optics and of the Portuguese Society for Optics and Photonics, SPOF. He is Senior member of the International Society for Optics and Photonics, SPIE, and Fellow of European Optical Society, EOS.


The Optical Metrology special session addresses all fields of metrology focusing on recent advance in the widest range of topics from the challenges of nanometrology to applications in automation and vehicle navigation: standards; modelling and data processing; optical measurement systems for industrial inspection and quality control; optical metrology and sensing of biomaterials and in medicine; optical metrology in arts, architecture and archaeology; range sensing and 3D inspection; videometrics; image acquisition and processing in optical metrology; dimensional metrology; interferometry; structured lightning; triangulation; focus sensing; scanning microscopy; OCT; optical measurement in nanomaterials and structures; critical dimensions; fibers sensors and sensing; industrial automation; robotics and vehicle navigation.
