Ganghun’s work was recently published in Applied Physics Letters. This is the first demonstration of widefield fluorescence microscopy of biological samples (mouse-brain slices) using computational-cannula microscopy. This is the first step in enabling one to elegantly image deep inside the brain with high resolution. The paper is available via open access here.
Our recent paper in Nature Photonics, which demonstrated the smallest polarization beamsplitter made to date was highlighted by several media organizations.

It was also reported in the local public radio station, KUER. The local TV station, KSL also ran the story.
Our lab had several presentations at OSA’s Imaging Systems & Applied Optics Conference in Arlington, VA. Peng presented his research on ultra-sensitive color cameras, which won him the best paper award. Precious presented her research on super-resolution lithography. Ganghun’s research on computational microscopy and Amihai’s research on super-resolution microscopy were also presented. Next year’s conference will be in Heidelberg Germany and Rajesh is the General Conference Chair.
Peng Wang won the 2015 OSA’s Imaging Systems Best Paper Award for his paper titled, “Computational Color Imaging with Enhanced Light Sensitivity based on a Microstructured Diffractive Element Array.” He will receive an award certificate at the reception on June 9. He will also give a talk on June 10. Congratulations!
Our group presented a poster at DisplayWeek 2015 in San Jose, CA on June 4, 2015. The poster titled, “Diffractive color-splitter for high-efficiency LCDs” describes the use of the polychromat to enhance the brightness of liquid-crystal displays. This project is a collaboration between my lab, PointSpectrum Corp. and Intel Corp.
Precious Cantu successfully defended her PhD thesis on June 5, 2015. Prof. Hank Smith from MIT was kind enough to visit for her defense. Congratulations!!
We had 4 presentations at the EIPBN 2015 conference in San Diego. Precious presented her work on super-resolution lithography. Rajesh presented an invited talk on digital metamaterials, while Hun and Apratim had their research presented as well.
