Dr Chao Wang of University of Kent

Topic:

Ultrafast single-pixel optical spectroscopy and imaging

Single-pixel spectroscopy and imaging feature greatly reduced complexity and cost. Photonic time stretch (PTS) enables ultrafast continuously running single-pixel spectroscopy and imaging with unprecedented speed of tens of millions frames per second. In this seminar, I will introduce this new type of imaging technique and its versatile utilities in biomedical, manufacturing and scientific applications. Emerging big data challenges in ultrafast imaging are discussed and our recent work on photonic data compression will be presented as well.

Biography:

Dr Chao Wang is a currently Senior Lecturer (Associate Professor) in the School of Engineering and Digital Arts at the University of Kent, UK, where he first joined as a Lecturer (Assistant Professor) in 2013. From 2011 to 2012, he was a NSERC Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), USA. He received his B.Eng degree in Opto-electrical Engineering from Tianjin University in 2002, M.Sc degree in Optics from Nankai University in 2005, and Ph.D degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of Ottawa, Canada, in 2011.

Dr Wang’s main research interests include microwave photonics, ultrafast imaging and optical communications. His research activities have been well funded by EU Marie-Curie Actions, EU H2020, the Royal Society, the EPSRC, and Catapult of UK. He has authored more than 100 peer-reviewed journal publications and international conference papers. He was the receipt of Vanier Canada Graduate Scholarship (2009), Chinese Government Award for Outstanding Self-Financed Students Abroad (2009), IEEE Photonics Society Graduate Student Fellowship (2009), IEEE MTT Society Graduate Fellowship (2010), NSERC Postdoctoral Fellowship (2011), and EU Marie-Curie Career Integration Grant (CIG) Award (2014). He is an Associate Editor of IEEE Photonics Technology Letters. He was a Guest Editor of a special section on Microwave Photonics in Optical Engineering in 2015, a lead Guest Editor of a special issue on Microwave Photonics in MDPI Photonics in 2017. He is a Technical Program Committee (TPC) Co-Chair of the 2019 Optoelectronics Global Conference (OGC). He also served as a TPC member of 2017 and 2019 IEEE MWP conferences. He is a Chartered Engineer (CEng) by IET and a Fellow of Higher Education Academy (HEA), UK.
