Profile Summary

Virgil-Florin Duma is Professor at the Aurel Vlaicu University of Arad, as well as head and founder of the 3OM Research Group (, for which he has secured funds in excess of 2M Euro in the last decade. He received his PhD cum laude in 2001, from the Polytechnic University of Timisoara (UPT), where he graduated in Fine Mechanics and Optics in 1991, valedictorian. He was a Fulbright Senior Research Fellow at The Institute of Optics, University of Rochester, NY, USA (2009-2010), where he is Visiting Scientist. He is also Visiting Senior Research Fellow at the University of Kent, UK and Adjunct Professor at UPT, at the latter as PhD Advisor. Prof. Duma defended his Habilitation Thesis in 2013 at the Polytechnic University of Bucharest. He is author of over 40 publications in journals indexed in Web of Science (with an impact factor higher than 60) and of over 100 papers in conference proceedings in WoS, 15 books & book chapters, and has 1 patent awarded and 2 patents pending. He delivered more than 30 invited presentations at international conferences and universities, including as SPIE Visiting Lecturer. Prof. Duma is reviewer for more than 25 journals indexed in Web of Science, for several funding programs, and co-chair of several SPIE conferences. He is currently guest editor of a special issue of Materials (ISSN 1996-1944). His main research interests are in Measuring Systems, Optomechatronics, and Biomedical Imaging, for the latter with a focus on Optical Coherence Tomography ( He is member of OSA, Senior Member of SPIE, and Life Member of the Fulbright Association.
