Multimedia Signal Processing:
Architectures and Imager Design: Adaptive systems, conformal systems, design of combined optical-digital imaging systems, wavefront coding, designing systems invariant or insensitive to various aberrations in order to increase performance or reduce weight, size, and cost, post-detection parallel processing.
Technologies: diffractive optics, GRIN optics, dynamic optical elements, optical MEMS, spatial light modulators, liquid crystals, acousto-optics and electro-optic devices, multispectral and hyperspectral detectors, high speed detectors, high dynamic range detectors, VCSELs, field programmable gate arrays.
Information Theory Applied to Imaging: Deterministic and stochastic properties of scenes, multi-dimensional coding (spatial, spectral, temporal), multi-dimensional channel characterization, novel coding and signal processing algorithms, fundamental limits of optical-digital (adaptive and non-adaptive) imaging, applications of advanced communication theoretic methods to hybrid imaging modalities, performance limits of single lens optical-digital imaging systems, invariance properties applied to adaptive optics.
