Wednesday, April 6, 13, 20, 28*, May 4, 2011, 7:00–9:30 PM (* Thursday April 28th)
Located at MIT Lincoln Laboratory – 244 Wood Street, Lexington, MA, 02420, USA

The rapid growth of innovative imaging techniques in many areas of science and engineering, such as biomedicine, materials science, astronomy, and homeland security, resulting from the application of maturing technologies in integrated optics, fiber optics, lasers, terahertz and microwave sources, detectors, and nanotechnology, requires practicing professionals to become knowledgeable about a whole new generation of imaging equipment. These imaging devices are not just optical, but range across the frequency spectrum from microwaves to x-rays, and even gamma rays. The techniques include quantum imaging, coherent or non-coherent imaging, coded aperture imaging, synthetic aperture radar, speckle imaging, dual photo-acoustic imaging, optical coherent tomography, polarization imaging, and many more. Some of these imaging techniques are well known in older narrow fields of application, but are now being reinvented and applied in a wide range of new applications. A major new aspect of today’s imaging engineering is the new software and software tools available, which are able to do things thought impossible only a few years ago, and do it extremely fast. It is the aim of this workshop to introduce new ground-breaking aspects of the different key areas of imaging technology to the attendees, as well as to foster communication and collaboration among the many different fields of imaging science of the individual practicing engineers and researchers attending. To learn more about these amazing new imaging technologies, attend the Imaging Workshop and discover the latest advancements at the cutting edge of optical and non-optical imaging research from ten of the foremost researchers in these emerging fields.
