Abstract / Description: 

This talk will review architectures for computational imaging arrays where algorithms and cameras are co-designed. The talk will focus on novel digital readout integrated circuits (DROICs) that achieve snapshot on-chip high dynamic range and object tracking where most commercial systems require a multiple exposure acquisition.


The Stanford Center for Image Systems Engineering (SCIEN) is a partnership between the Stanford School of Engineering and technology companies developing imaging systems for the enhancement of human communication.


Christy Fernandez-Cull received her M.S. and Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Duke University. She has worked at MIT Lincoln Laboratory as a member of the technical staff in the Sensor Technology and System Applications group and is a research affiliate with the Camera Culture Group at MIT Media Laboratory. She is an active member in the OSA, SPIE, IEEE, and SHPE. Christy has worked on and published papers pertaining to computational imager design, coded aperture systems, photonics, compressive holography, weather satellites, periscope systems and millimeter-wave holography systems. Her interests include research and development efforts in science and technology, volunteering to stimulate science, technology, engineering, and math disciplines in K-12 grades, and keeping up-to-date with advances in science policy.
