Bio

Jie Qiao is currently an Associate Professor in the Carlson Center for Imaging Science at Rochester Institute of Technology. She leads the Advanced Optical Fabrication, Instrumentation & Metrology Laboratory where her team works on ultrafast-lasers-enabled advanced photonics / optics / waveguide laser fabrication, wavefront sensing, and spatial temporal control of laser beams. Prior to joining RIT, she was a laser system scientist at the Department -of-Energy-funded Laboratory for Laser Energetics, University of Rochester from 2005 to 2013. She led the demonstration of the world’s first 1.5-meter coherently-phased-grating pulse compressor for petawatt lasers. Dr. Qiao has worked on various innovative photonics devices, optical imaging and metrology systems, for two photonic startups and one optics company. Dr. Qiao earned her Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of Texas at Austin and her M.S. in Precision Instruments and Fine Mechanics from Tsinghua University. She has an M.B.A in entrepreneurship, strategy, finance and marketing from the Simon Graduate School of Business, University of Rochester. Dr. Qiao founded Women in Science, Technology, Engineering and Entrepreneurship Connect in 2013, for which she is serving as the Chair. Dr. Qiao is an associate editor for Optics Express since 2018.

Currently Teaching

IMGS-321
3 Credits
This course introduces the analysis and design of optical imaging systems based on the ray model of light. Topics include reflection, refraction, imaging with lenses, stops and pupils, prisms, magnification and optical system design using computer software.
IMGS-890
1 - 6 Credits
Doctoral-level research by the candidate on an appropriate topic as arranged between the candidate and the research advisor.
IMGS-891
0 Credits
Continuation of Thesis
IMGS-635
3 Credits
The primary objectives of this course are to teach critical optics and system concepts, and skills to specify, design, simulate, and evaluate optical components and systems. A modern optical design program and various types of optical systems will be used to illustrate how to solve real-world optical engineering problems. The course is not a traditional lens design course, which usually focuses on designing and optimizing individual lens elements. Instead the course will emphasize analyzing systems, which are often made with off-the-shelf optical components.
