Physics colloquium-“Next Generation Computational Imaging & Massively Multiplexed Metrologies”
March 19 @ 4:00 pm
Colorado School of Mines
Department of Physics
Abstract: Advances in computational imaging over the last decade sparked a revolution in metrologies aimed at understanding nano-material, magnetic, and acoustic systems. These advances have primarily been leveraged in the X-ray range but will have a significant impact in other spectral regions including the ultraviolet, visible, infrared, and beyond. In this talk, I will review progress in computational imaging in the extreme ultraviolet region and give some perspective on how the technology is poised to usher in a new revolution in high-dimensional metrology. I will also discuss current efforts geared toward unlocking the full potential of light as a non-invasive, non-destructive probe over an incredibly broad range of length and time scales. Latent application areas include advanced manufacturing, measuring complex light states, plasma imaging, linear and nonlinear material properties, and bioimaging.
Biography: Dr. Adams received his PhD from the Colorado School of Mines under the supervision of Professor Charles Durfee, specializing in ultrafast spatio-temporal dynamics. His interests range from perturbative nonlinear optics and high harmonic generation to phase retrieval with applications in coherent diffraction imaging. Dr. Adams is the recipient of a young investigator award in the area of high dimensional metrologies for plasma imaging and investigation of filamentation.
