Dr. Terrence S. Lomheim, is a Distinguished Engineer in the Sensor Systems Subdivision, Engineering and Technology Group of The Aerospace Corporation. For the past 40 years he has performed detailed experimental evaluations of the electro-optical properties, imaging capabilities, and radiation-effects sensitivities of infrared and visible focal plane devices, and has been involved in the development of modeling tools used to predict instrument-level performance for advanced DoD and NASA visible and infrared point-source and imaging sensor systems. He regularly performs design synthesis, trade studies and evaluations of imaging, multispectral / hyperspectral, and overhead persistent infrared (OPIR) sensor systems with an emphasis on the leverage that advanced digital focal plane technology provides. Dr. Lomheim has authored and coauthored 65 publications in the areas of visible and infrared focal plane technology, sensor design and performance, and applied optics. He received the Ph.D. in Physics from the University of Southern California in 1978. He is a part-time instructor in the physics department at California State University, Dominguez Hills, and regularly teaches technical short courses for the International Society for Optical Engineering (SPIE) and for the UCSB and UCLA Extension programs. He is a Fellow of SPIE, the International Society for Optical Engineering. He a co-author of the book entitled, “CMOS/ CCD Sensors and Camera Systems, 2nd Edition”, published by JCD and the SPIE Press in 2011.
