Call for
In recent years, the field of optical imaging has experienced tremendous technological and conceptual breakthroughs. Advances in system design and novel approaches to information processing have enabled significant progress in a number of areas including, but not limited to, nanoscopy and superresolution imaging, phase imaging, 3D imaging, light-field imaging, digital holography, and compressive sensing. This progress has been made possible by the developments in light sources and detectors and the miniaturization and democratization of computing resources. Equally important, progress is driven by cross-disciplinary collaboration between the fields of imaging science, optical design, and signal/image processing as well as the continuing evolution of photonics components development as evidenced by new sensor technologies, light sources, optical materials and optical elements. Modern imaging makes it necessary to have a comprehensive understanding and control of the full scope of disciplines from optical modeling through optical design to digital image processing and analysis. These innovative imaging techniques are finding many new uses ranging from the fundamental aspects of materials science and the biological sciences to downstream industrial metrology and medical imaging applications.

The area of optical imaging being more than ever at the crossroads of these fields drives the need for a topical conference on novel optical imaging to stimulate scientific interaction between international academic and industrial participants in this innovative imaging domain. Papers from academia, research organizations, industry and government organizations are solicited on the following and related topics:

  • light field/plenoptic imaging
  • interferometric imaging (including digital holography)
  • superresolution techniques and nanoscopy for imaging
  • lensless imaging techniques
  • quantitative phase imaging
  • tomographic imaging
  • multicomponent imaging
  • multimodal imaging and fusion
  • polarimetric imaging
  • multispectral imaging
  • synthetic aperture imaging
  • imaging through scattering media
  • nonlinear imaging & advanced microscopy such as SHG, CARS, and others
  • extreme optical imaging including the use THz, X-ray, and gamma radiation in imaging
  • 3D imaging
  • co-design optics/processing
  • compressed sensing for unconventional imaging
  • computational imaging
  • inverse problems in imaging
  • information processing in unconventional imaging including algorithms for blind deconvolution, source separation, de-noising, and detection/classification
  • machine learning algorithms for unconventional imaging.

  • Sensing
  • wavefront sensing
  • phase restoration and wavefront reconstruction
  • non-contact measurement and optical sensing in harsh environments
  • hybrid optical sensors and imagers
  • advanced image sensors for use in unconventional imaging methods
