About

Silvania Pereira

My research topics are optical metrology and vectorial optics. In optical metrology, we develop non-destructive optical methods aiming both for inspection of printed wafers for the semiconductor industry and contamination on surfaces due to very small nanoparticles (< 100 nm).  The latter has applications in quality control of wafers as well as plastic or glass substrates for solar cells, OLEDs. In the area of vectorial optics, we work on the development of high resolution optical systems based on nonconventional polarisation states of light such as radial and azimuthal polarisation and we also explore other properties of light such as angular momentum in order to improve the optical systems for imaging and inspection.
