A new ultrafast time-of-flight imaging technique uses reflections from a nonmirrored surface to recover 3-D shapes hidden from sight, essentially allowing the camera to capture images around corners. Scientists at MIT’s Media Lab recovered 60 images from an ultrafast camera using 60 femtosecond laser positions to produce recognizable 3-D images of a wooden figurine and foam cutouts outside the device’s line of sight. The findings could lead to imaging systems that allow emergency responders to evaluate dangerous environments or to vehicle navigation systems that can...Read full article

    photonics
    The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
