Computational Imaging Through Scattering
Imaging through scattering media has long been a challenge, as scattering corrupts measurements in a non-invertible way. Using near-visible wavelengths to image through scattering media can realize broad applications in bio-medical and industrial imaging. It provides many advantages, such as optical contrast, non-ionizing radiation and availability of fluorescent tags. In this talk I'll discuss recent techniques that were developed to overcome and use scattering in order to recover scene parameters. Our computational imaging approach is based on an ultrafast time-resolved measurement of light transport. The measurement provides high-dimensional data that is used in an algorithmic framework to computationally invert the scattering. I'll demonstrate this approach in two different scenarios: first, a method to recover the location of fluorescent markers hidden behind turbid layer and classify them based on florescence lifetime analysis; second, a method to recover a scene hidden behind a thick tissue phantom. The talk is self-contained and no prior knowledge is required.

General Information on NES/OSA Meetings
Cancellations and No-shows:
If the meeting must be cancelled for any reason, we will try to call you at the phone number you leave with your reservation. Official notice of cancellation will be on our answering machine.
We have to pay for the dinners reserved as of the Tuesday before the meeting, so no-shows eat into our cash reserve. If you will not be able to attend, please let us know as early as possible. Otherwise, no-shows will be billed.
NOTE: The extra $5.00 of the non-member dinner fee can be used toward membership dues if the nonmember joins and pays dues for the current year at the meeting.
