Event Details & Abstracts

Complex heterogeneous materials, that scatter light in a highly complex way, present a huge challenge for imaging (think of seeing inside or through milk or biological tissues) and a very interesting playground to study fundamental issues of wave physics. In my talk, I will discuss how shaping the wavefront of a laser allows imaging in and through complex media, well beyond what was conventionally thought possible. I will also show how complex media can be used for computational imaging and even perform some optical computing tasks.
