Current research involves extension of medical thermal imaging to the use of various transform techniques and novel optical designs for the creation of a multi-spectral imaging camera. It is anticipated that this camera will find wide commercial use in the detection of gas leaks from pipelines and refineries, and in field use for stand-off detection of deployed chemical weapons.


Dr. Rockley is also currently engaged in the development of a commercial product for analysis of EKG signals, is the technical lead on a device for extraction of oil from stripper wells, is designing an integrated multi-parameter water chemistry sensor, and is beginning an embedded controller development for an ultra-low cost thermal imaging camera.
