New Visiting Lecturers

Over the past few months, SPIE Student Services has added several new faces to the Visiting Lecturer directory. Take some time and get familiar with the newest volunteers.

Andrea Armani
Micro- and Nanotechnology for label-free biophotonics

Andrea Armani received her BA in physics from the University of Chicago and her PhD in applied physics with a minor in biology from the California Institute of Technology, where she continued as the Clare Boothe Luce post-doctoral Fellow in biology and chemical engineering. She is an Assistant Professor of Chemical Engineering and Materials Science and Electrical Engineering-Electrophysics in the Viterbi School of Engineering at the University of Southern California. The research focus of the Armani lab is the design and optimization of novel optical devices for studying biological and chemical systems.

Juan Campos
Liquid crystal spatial light modulators. Characterization and optimization of the amplitude, phase & polarization modulation
Polarization diffractive optics with liquid crystal displays
Characterization of integration methods by their transfer function. Application to the obtention of the surface profile from slope measurements

Prof. Juan Campos is at the Department of Physics, Universidad Autónoma de Barcelona, Spain, since 1993. Fomerly he was a Profesor at the University of Barcelona since 1981. He earned the Physics Degree at the University of Zaragoza, and the Ph. D. Degree at the Universidad Autonoma de Barcelona. He has worked in optical image system quality, optical pattern recognition, diffractive optics, and metrology.

Aydogan Ozcan
Lensfree holographic on-chip imaging for telemedicine applications

Prof. Aydogan Ozcan received his Ph.D. degree at Stanford University Electrical Engineering Department in 2005. After a short post-doctoral fellowship at Stanford University, he is appointed as a Research Faculty Member at Harvard Medical School, Wellman Center for Photomedicine in 2006. Dr. Ozcan joined UCLA in the summer of 2007, where he is currently leading the Bio- and Nano-Photonics Laboratory at the Electrical Engineering Department.

Joseph Shaw
What color is the sky at night? A tribute to Lord Rayleigh
Optics in Nature

Joseph Shaw is the Director of the Optical Technology Center, Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering, and Affiliate Professor of Physics at Montana State University in Bozeman, Montana. Dr. Shaw conducts research developing optical remote sensing systems and using them to study climate, weather, and atmospheric optical propagation. Current projects include polarization imaging, radiometric imaging, multi- and hyper-spectral imaging, and lidar measurements in the natural environment.

Sarun Sumriddetchkajorn
Data-non-intrusive photonics-based credit card verifiers
Experiences in Photonics RD&E
Diffusing optics and photonics in our community

Sarun Sumriddetchkajorn received his B.Eng. in electrical engineering with honors in 1994 from Khon Kaen University, Thailand. In 1996, he was awarded a Thai government scholarship and then joined the School of Optics/Center for Research and Education in Optics and Lasers (CREOL) at the University of Central Florida (UCF) in Orlando, Florida. He earned his M.S. and Ph.D. in optical science and engineering in 1998 and 2000, respectively, based on his work in fiber-optic beam control systems using microelectromechanical systems (MEMS).

Maria Yzuel
Introduction of color information in pattern recognition by correlation methods
Use of liquid crystal spatial light modulators in phase only regime in diffractive optics
Modification of the PSF of optical systems with non uniform transmission filters. Use of liquid crystal spatial light modulators

Prof. Maria Yzuel is at the Department of Physics, Universidad Autónoma de Barcelona (UAB), Spain, since 1983. Formerly she was a Professor of Optics at the Universities of Zaragoza and Granada, Spain. She is a member of the Royal Academy of Sciences and Arts of Barcelona, Spain. Dr. Yzuel is the SPIE 2009 President.
