Far Field Spesckle Correlations

TYPEStudent Seminar
Speaker:David Karl
Location:Lidow 605
Abstract: I will present an comprehensive study of the theory and practical potential for remote sensing of the dynamics of movement of a rough surface, using correlations of the speckle pattern created from an incident laser beam. The intended application is to sense acoustically-induced movements of rough surfaces from a remote location. The algorithms developed were tested for performance both with classical fields and with photon limited detectors, under various realistic limitations such as camera readout noise, column noise, fixed pattern noise, dead or burnt pixels etc.
