From Extreme Materials to the Brain: Computational Imaging Systems for Measurement-Limited Applications presented by Prof. Mark Foster, Johns Hopkins University, Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering

Abstract: In this talk I will discuss our research into leveraging computational imaging methods for overcoming traditional physical constraints on imaging performance in “measurement-limited” scenarios. Imaging systems can become measurement-limited under various conditions resulting in strict limits to the amount of image information that can be physically acquired. For example, in high-speed photography the imaging system is often limited in the number of measurements that can be acquired per second. In a similar vein, an ultra-small imager such as a micro-endoscope is limited by the number of measurements that can be acquired in a given cross-sectional area. I will discuss our recent research in applying optical signal processing and computational imaging to enhance imaging performance under such conditions. Specifically, I will discuss our research into ultrahigh-speed hyperspectral imaging for studying combustion dynamics of extreme materials as well as high-speed multiphoton microscopy and ultra-small minimally-invasive lensless micro-endoscopy for studying neural activity in the brain.
