Four-Fold Resolution Increase in Single-Fiber Endoscopic Imaging

Event Description

A technical seminar on “Four-Fold Resolution Increase in Single-Fiber Endoscopic Imaging” will be held from 3.00 – 4.00 pm, Tuesday, 13th November 2018 in the Department of Biomedical Engineering, BUET, jointly organized by the Department of BME, BUET and IEEE ComSoc BD Chapter. The talk will be presented by Dr. Joseph M. Kahn, Professor, E. L. Ginzton Laboratory, Department of Electrical Engineering, Stanford University, CA,USA. Dr. Kahn’s main fields of research include Single-Mode Fiber Communications, Spatial Multiplexing and Multi-Mode Fiber Communications, Multi-Mode Fiber Microscopy and Sensing, Free-Space Optical Communications and Multi-Input Multi-Output Radio Communications. Dr. Khan applies principles of photonics, signal processing, communications and information theory to advance the performance of communication or imaging systems.

Joseph M. Kahn received the A.B., M.A. and Ph.D. degrees in Physics from U.C. Berkeley in 1981, 1983 and 1986, respectively. From 1987-1990, he was at AT&T Bell Laboratories, Crawford Hill Laboratory, in Holmdel, NJ. He demonstrated multi-Gbit/s coherent optical fiber transmission systems, setting world records for receiver sensitivity. From 1990-2003, he was on the faculty of the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences at U.C. Berkeley, performing research on optical and wireless communications. Since 2003, he has been a Professor of Electrical Engineering at Stanford University, where he heads the Optical Communications Group. His current research interests include: fiber-based imaging, spatial multiplexing, rate-adaptive and spectrally efficient modulation and coding methods, coherent detection and associated digital signal processing algorithms, digital compensation of fiber nonlinearity, and free-space systems. Professor Kahn received the National Science Foundation Presidential Young Investigator Award in 1991. He is a Fellow of the IEEE. From 1993-2000, he served as a Technical Editor of IEEE Personal Communications Magazine. From 2009-2014, he was an Associate Editor of IEEE/OSA Journal of Optical Communications and Networking. In 2000, he helped found StrataLight Communications, where he served as Chief Scientist from 2000-2003. StrataLight was acquired by Opnext, Inc. in 2009.
