Bin Ma and Dustin Moore win O.R.A./Synopsis optical design competition

August 15, 2011

Bin Ma and Dustin Moore have been named co-winners of the 2010-2011 Robert S. Hilbert Memorial Optical Design Competition operated by O.R.A./Synopsis. The competition recognizes excellence in optical design projects completed by students. 

Bin Ma is a Visiting Research Associate with Prof. Jannick Rolland, was recognized for his work on aspheric lens design using CODE V in his paper titled, "Design of Lithographic Lenses with Slope Constrained Q-Polynomials," Synopsys (Mountain View, Calif.) said. Applications of Ma's project include ultra-precise projector lenses used to make ICs, Synopsys said. 

Dustin Moore, a Ph.D. student in Prof. James Fienup's group, was recognized for his work on a panoramic imaging system using CODE V in his paper titled, "A High Resolution Four-Pi Steradian Panoramic Video System," Synopsys said. The goal of Moore's design is to improve the quality of systems providing 360-degree, interactive video, according to the firm.
