Speakers: Miles Padgett

Cameras are often marketed in terms of the number of pixels they possess – the more pixels the “better” the camera. Rather than increasing the number of pixels we ask the questions “how can a camera work with a single pixel”. This talk will link the field of computational ghost imaging to that of single-pixel imaging explaining how spatial structuring of either the illumination or imaging system means that image and video reconstruction can be achieved using just a small number of photodiodes.

Such approaches are particularly useful for imaging at wavelengths where detector arrays are either very expensive or unobtainable.

Miles Padgett FRS holds the Kelvin Chair of Natural Philosophy at the University of Glasgow. His research interests span classical to quantum optics using structured light to create new opportunities in imaging, communications and sensing.
