Optics and physics collaboration produces paper that is Science magazine Editor's Choice

July 8, 2013

Congratulations to Optics Prof. Robert Boyd, Physics Prof. John Howell, Boyd team members Omar Magana-Loaiza and Mehul Malik, and Physics grad student Gregory Howland, whose paper on "Compressive object tracking using entangled photons" was picked as a Science magazine Editor's Choice.

The paper demonstrates how advanced imaging techniques can be used to track a moving target, requiring many fewer measurements to do so, and describes how such a resource-efficient strategy has real-world applications for stealth imaging of moving targets. The paper was originally published by the American Institute of Physics' Applied Physics Letters. Click here to read the paper.
