Description: A upper-level introduction to imaging systems as an integral part of the sense-process-decide-act cycle. This cycle is central to the operation of any goal-directed system, biological or engineered. Students will gain a basic understanding of the mechanisms by which information about a scene is encoded on an electro-magnetic wave. Furthermore, the students will learn to analyze the information extraction process realized via the imaging chain of front-end optics, transduction, and post-processing. The objective of the course is to understand the limits of modern image formation and how optics, photonic-to-electronic transduction, and post-detection processing can be jointly designed to enable imagers with unique capabilities.
