Compressive ghost imaging paper covered by Science

July 5, 2013

Our recent paper in Applied Physics Letters is covered in today's issue of Science as an Editors' Choice.  Our paper, entitled "Compressive object tracking using entangled photons," describes a method to track a moving object using ghost imaging, an indirect imaging technique, with extremely low light levels.  Our approach makes use of concepts from compressive sensing, in which only the minimum number of measurements are taken to extract the desired information.  The paper was also mentioned recently in the MIT Technology Review and the S&T News Bulletin of the US Department of Defense.  Congratulations to Omar Magaña Loaiza and his coauthors!
