This is part 2 of a 3 part series post on the Controlled Light Propagation Incubator meeting at OSA headquarters in Washington, DC
Is it possible to look inside an object using only light reflected off the front? Can you transmit more light through an attenuating medium by making it even thicker? Could a bank verify your identity using the pattern of light scattered off your teeth?
These tantalizing scenarios were among many presented during today’s meeting. Though the focus remains on developing non-invasive deep imaging techniques for biological tissue, in particular using cameras and modulators placed only on the front side of a sample, the discussion also addressed more general questions on the theoretical limits of beam control and applications of scattering media to wide-field sensing.
