Lensless Camera Creates 3D Images From Single Exposure

Researchers at the UC Davis College of Engineering have developed a camera that uses a thin microlens array and new image processing algorithms to capture three dimensional information about objects in a scene with a single exposure. The camera could be useful for a variety of applications such as industrial part inspection, gesture recognition and collecting data for 3D display systems.

Improving Agricultural Production by Slowing Down the Speed of Light

An interdisciplinary team of researchers led by Professor Saif Islam from the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering will be forging a new partnership with Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratories to create innovative, fluorescence lifetime imaging—a process currently used in the medical field—for improving agricultural practices. 

Research in Action: Weijian Yang Advances Optical Methods and Neurotechnologies

Electrical and Computer Engineering Associate Professor Weijian Yang’s goal is to decode how the brain works in various processes, such as learning and memory formation, through the development of advanced optical methods and neurotechnologies to record and modulate brain activity. Additional interdisciplinary research has applications in biomedical imaging and smart health.
