Biosketch of speaker

prof. Tim WilkinsonTim Wilkinson (CEng) received his BE (Elec.) from Canterbury University, New Zealand (1989) and his PhD from Magdalene College, Cambridge (1994). He is currently a Reader in Photonic Engineering in the Engineering Department and a fellow of Jesus College. He has been working in the field of free-space optics, devices and systems for over 15 years. He developed the binary phase-only matched filter (BPOMF) and 1/f joint transform correlators during this PhD, and has since filed several patents and authored and co-authored over seventy refereed journal papers on optical applications, processing and devices. Recent research has involved applications of holographic technology including adaptive optical interconnects, optical pattern recognition and display applications for novel liquid crystal electro-optic devices.


The future of holographic projection

In this talk I will introduce the fundamentals of image generation by holographic projection. On of the main limitations of this technique is
the ability to modulate the light to create the hologram. As a result, nanophonic structures have become a viable means of enhancing this light modulation through both plasmonic resonance and optical diffraction.
