Rajesh presented at the OSA’s incubator for “Metamaterial Films for In-Space Propulsion by Radiation Pressure.” This is a really exciting new application of our broadband diffractive optics for potential use in interplanetary and inter-stellar travel.
Our recent paper on a lensless transparent camera was the top download from Optics Express for August 2018! Congratulations to Hun for a great paper. The paper is freely available here.
Hun’s recent work on applying computation to turn a transparent window into a camera was recently published in Optics Express. The University of Utah did a fantastic press release regarding this paper and also noted by many other media outlets listed below. The paper is freely available here. Continue reading
Congratulations to Sourangsu Banerji, who won the best student poster award at “São Paulo School of Advanced Science (SPSAS) + XIV Jorge André Swieca School on Non linear and Quantum Optics (SWIECA) held in Nuclear and Energy Research Institute, IPEN, at the University of São Paulo (USP) in Brazil (link). His poster (collaboration with Monjurul Meem) was titled “From Visible to THz: Planar Optics for High-Precision, Energy-Efficient Laser Applications.”
Rajesh was recently elected to be a Senior Member of SPIE. SPIE Senior Members are Members of distinction honored for their professional experience, their active involvement with the optics community and SPIE, and/or significant performance that sets them apart from their peers.
Rajesh chairs the OSA’s Computational Sensing & Imaging (COSI) Conference in Orlando, FL June 25-28, 2019. This is the best focused, small meeting in the overall field of computational imaging. Rajesh also gave a presentation here titled, “Computational cannula microscopy: utilizing a single glass needle for imaging.”
