Lecture Title(s)

Computational lithography: In this talk, I'll review briefly how lithography simulation led to computational lithography, and the current role and challenges of the latter, such as in hotspot analysis and inverse lithography.

Computational imaging in digital holography and optical tomography
In this talk, I'll discuss how certain imaging modalities, such as digital holography and optical tomography, make use of computation to complement or enhance their imaging capabilities.
