Cette conférence de vulgarisation scientifique est entièrement en anglais. Il est nécessaire d'avoir un bon niveau de compréhension pour suivre (B1-B2 minimum). Il n'est pas nécessaire d'être spécialisé en physique ; le sujet a d'ailleurs des applications dans plusieurs domaines scientifiques.

Computational imaging combines measurement and computational methods with the aim of forming images even when the measurement conditions are weak, few in number, or highly indirect. The recent surge in quantum-inspired imaging sensors, together with a new wave of algorithms allowing on-chip, scalable and robust data processing, has induced an increase of activity with notable results in the domain of low-light flux imaging and sensing.
In this talk Professor Steve McLaughlin will consider some of the challenges encountered in low-illumination (e.g., ultrafast) imaging and how these problems have recently been addressed for imaging applications in extreme conditions.
To prepare for this talk, you can read the 2 following articles:
A vocabulary list will also be sent by email before the talk.

Stephen McLaughlin is a visiting professor this semester.
He obtained his B.Sc. from the University of Glasgow in 1981 and the Ph.D from the University of Edinburgh in 1990. From 1981 to 1986 he was a Development Engineer in industry. In 1986 he joined the Dept. of Electronics and Electrical Engineering at the University of Edinburgh and ultimately held a Chair in Electronic Communication Systems. In October 2011 he joined Heriot-Watt University as a Professor of Signal Processing. Prof McLaughlin is a Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering, of the Royal Society of Edinburgh, of the Institute of Engineering and Technology, of the IEEE and is a EURASIP Fellow.
