Advances in Optical Coherence Tomography
Advances in Optical Coherence Tomography
Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a high-resolution, three-dimensional, noninvasive imaging technique. It is often called an optical ultrasound because it relies on time-of-flight information, similar to ultrasound imaging, to obtain subsurface information. The success of this technique has been fueled by a unique combination of technical and commercial factors, which include major investment in lasers, optical fibers, and sensors for telecommunications. That OCT is benefitting from these advances is proven in its applications across the health care industry.

Improving Additive Manufacturing with IR Cameras
Improving Additive Manufacturing with IR Cameras
3D printing is revolutionizing manufacturing. Also known as additive manufacturing (AM), 3D printing uses computerized or digital models to generate simple parts and complex components. By studying the printing process and its thermal properties with IR cameras, manufacturers have been able to make quick corrections with minimal production delays. IR cameras, whether traditional or high-speed, can assist in the discovery and diagnosis of potential problems, and can help manufacturers determine where changes must be implemented to maintain product uniformity and quality.

Computational Imaging: Using Hardware and Software Together to Design High-Resolution, Light-Efficient Imaging Systems
Computational Imaging: Using Hardware and Software Together to Design High-Resolution, Light-Efficient Imaging Systems
Tue, Oct 16, 2018 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM EDT
This webinar will discuss computational imaging - a new generation of cameras that integrates computers as part of an imaging system. In computational imaging, optical imaging systems and image processing systems work together to achieve things that neither can do alone. Presenter Laura Waller of UC Berkeley will explain how computational imaging works and discuss its capabilities, such as 3D image acquisition, and its advantages. She will introduce the compact, lensless computational camera built by her lab, called DiffuserCam, which uses an algorithm to reconstruct 3D images computationally. Waller will also discuss applications for computational imaging, including microscopy and phase imaging for biological samples and industrial applications such as lithography.
