About Us


3OM stands for our three major directions of activity, teaching and research:
Opto-Mechatronics, Optomechanics and Optical Metrology.

The 3OM Group was founded in December 2008 with the support of National University Research Council (NURC) of Romania. We are part of the Faculty of Engineering of the “Aurel Vlaicu” University of Arad (UAVA), Romania, which is situated in a beautiful Arad County in the Western part of the country.Our research interests cover a wide variety of topics:

  • Optomechatronics, with a focus on Optical Scanners, Choppers, Attenuators etc.;
  • Optical Design and Metrology, with a focus on Optical Devices, Radiometry and Colorimetry;
  • Optomechanics
  • Renewable Energies (Solar, Hydro, Wind);
  • Mechanical Engineering (Mechanisms, Machine Parts, Robotics);
  • Quality Control and Automation;
  • Electronics and IT.

Our teaching interests range from Theoretical and Computational Physics to Mechanical Engineering, Optomechatronics, Quality Control and Automation, including Electronics and IT.
