WiLO/SPIE Student Chapter Seminar: "Applications of Interferometric and Non-interferometric Methods for 3D Imaging" by Partha Banerjee

Thursday, June 28, 2018 11:00 AM to 12:00 PM
CREOL Room 103

In this talk both interferometric and non-interferometric methods for 3D imaging will be discussed, with particular emphasis on multi-wavelength digital holography and transport of intensity.  Multi-wavelength digital holography is applied to reconstructions of various objects.  Besides demonstration of very large and very small synthetic wavelengths, of particular recent interest is the 3D reconstruction of level 3 details in latent fingerprints. Other applications of multi-wavelength digital holography resulting from realization of very small and very large synthetic wavelengths are discussed.  Applications of digital holographic tomography to 3D virtual reality is demonstrated. Also, it is shown how the transport of intensity equation, along with its coupled transport of phase equation can be used to obtain better estimates of imaged phase and 3D profiles.  The interrogated phase is from self-phase modulation of a laser beam in a thermal medium. Other methods of solving the transport of intensity equation are also discussed and compared.


Partha P. Banerjee is professor and Chair of Electro-Optics and Photonics at the University of Dayton, USA, and professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering, where he was Chair from 2000 to 2005. He received his B. Tech degree from the Indian Institute of Technology, and the MS and PhD degrees from the University of Iowa. Prior to Dayton, he was with the University of Alabama in Huntsville, USA from 1991 to 2000, and with Syracuse University from 1984 to 1991. Dr. Banerjee was the recipient of the NSF Presidential Young Investigator Award in 1986, and is Fellow of OSA, SPIE and the Institute of Physics. His research interests include dynamic and digital holography, metamaterials, acousto-optics and nonlinear optics. He has authored/coauthored 5 textbooks, over 135 refereed journal publications and over 200 conference publications. Dr. Banerjee has given over 50 invited presentations and seminars in national and international conferences and universities. He was topical editor for Applied Optics, Chair of OSA Environmental Sensing, and Chair of OSA Digital Holography meetings in 2010 and 2016. Over his 35 year career, he has graduated 25 PhDs and 15 MS students.
