The EECS Department welcomes Dr. Bahram Javidi, Board of Trustees Distinguished Professor at University of Connecticut.

Javidi will present a talk entitled "Multi-Dimensional Optical Sensing and Imaging Systems (MOSIS)" on Friday, June 29 at 11:00 AM in Tech Room L440.

Abstract: In this seminar, we present an overview of our work on multidimensional imaging, including 3D imaging, visualization, and displays, augmented reality viewing devices, flexible 3D sensing and imaging, nano-scale 3D imaging, 3D visualization and 3D object recognition with very few photons (photon counting imaging), polarimetric imaging; and their broad applications in manufacturing, military, defense, and homeland security, 3D microscopy, bio-medicine and healthcare, and commercial eletronics. The seminar will address the challenges and potential of these systems for high performance imaging. Also, we shall present our efforts to establish a new Center of Excellence on optical imaging at UConn. The title of the center is Multi-Dimensional Optical Sensing and Imaging Systems (MOSIS). MOSIS encompasses new technologies that can be used to enhance sensing, reality communication, and visualization of real-world objects. MOSIS intends to have a substantial partnership with universities, government Labs, and industries. Technologies to be investigated by MOSIS intend to provide a substantial benefit for consumer electronics, entertainment, and mobile communications, healthcare, defense, information security and anti counterfeiting, manufacturing, and education.

Bio: Prof. Bahram Javidi is Board of Trustees Distinguished Professor at the University of Connecticut. His main research interests are optics for multi-dimensional imaging, visualization, and information processing, optics & photonics for information systems, 3D displays, optics for defense, security, and healthcare applications, and optics for authentication and security. He is particularly interested in advanced imaging applications through cross disciplinary collaboration with colleagues in photonics, optoelectronic devices, nano technologies, quantum optics, and biomedicine. He has numerous international collaborations with academia, government labs, and industry. He has over 500 peer reviewed journal articles, and over 480 conference proceedings, including over 120 plenary addresses, keynote addresses, and invited conference papers. His papers have been cited 39,000 times according to Google Scholar (h index=92). He is a fellow of several societies, including IEEE, Optical Society (OSA), and SPIE. He is the recipient of the
The Optical Society (OSA) Joseph Fraunhofer Award / Robert M. Burley Prize (2018), The Quantum Electronics and Optics Prize for Applied Aspects by the European Physical Society (2015), the John Simon Guggenheim Foundation Fellow award (2008), and the IEEE Donald G. Fink prize for the most outstanding survey, review, or tutorial paper published in the IEEE Transactions, Journals, and Magazines (2008). In 2007, The Alexander von Humboldt Foundation awarded him with the Humboldt Prize for outstanding US scientists. He received the Technology Achievement Award in 2008 and the Dennis Gabor Award in Diffractive Wave Technologies from the SPIE. He was the recipient of the IEEE Photonics Distinguished Lecturer Award in 2003–2004 and 2004–2005. Early in his career, the National Science Foundation named him a Presidential Young Investigator. He is an alumnus of the Frontiers of Engineering of The National Academy of Engineering since 2003. He has served on the Editorial Board of the Proceedings of the IEEE Journal (ranked #1 among all electrical engineering journals) and the IEEE Photonics Journal, and the founding board of editors of IEEE/OSA Journal of Display Technology.
