IMAGING & OPTICAL PHYSICS SEMINAR
Tuesday 11 September 2018 @ 3.00pm to 4.30pm
Large Seminar Room 107, 10 College Walk, Clayton
3:00 pm - 3:30 pm: Dr Janosch Rieger (Monash University)
Title: A Galerkin-type approach to shape optimisation in the space of convex sets and its application to Electrical Impedance Tomography (EIT).
Abstract: In this talk, I will discuss spaces of polytopes with
fixed outer normals and their use in theoretical and practical shape optimization. These spaces possess a natural system of coordinates, have properties similar to those of finite element spaces, and all admissible coordinates can be characterized by a linear inequality, which is handy both from an analytical as well as from a computational perspective.
The convex source support is a theoretical concept for the localisation of inhomogeneities in otherwise homogeneous material that was originally developed in the context of scattering and later transferred to electrical impedance tomography. I will show how spaces of polytopes can be used to approximate the convex source support of an EIT problem.
3:30 pm – 4 pm: Adjunct Prof. David Paganin (Monash University)
Title of the talk: X-ray Ghost Imaging
Abstract: Several recent results in x-ray ghost imaging will be outlined. This is an unusual form of imaging in which all photons, that are used to form an image, are never registered by a position-sensitive detector. Applications to one-, two- and three-dimensional objects will be reported, as well as some developments regarding the synthesis of images (both in ghost imaging, and more generally) via a linear combination of noise maps.
