Non-Traditional Imaging and Displays
A synthesis of non-traditional imaging methods and new computational algorithms can achieve remarkable imaging capabilities unavailable in traditional counterparts. Fourier optics, interferometric imaging, photonic convolution and photonic masking can achieve image processing directly in the photonic domain. Integrated photonic solutions to photonic imaging can also offer a number of new techniques for imaging. At UC Davis, researchers are exploring a wide array of futuristic imaging technologies based on advanced photonics and signal-processing concepts.
