PSI Seminar: Novel Imaging Techniques by Utilizing Optical Field Engineering

PSI Seminar: Novel Imaging Techniques by Utilizing Optical Field Engineering

By: Prof. Kebin Shi, Peking University

Hosted by: Prof. Qiaoqiang Gan


Optical technology is one of the most important scientific tools with the capability of high resolution in both temporal and spatial dimensions. There have been increasing research interests in optical imaging technology, especially in biomedical and material research fields, where higher spatial resolution, better sensitivity, deeper penetration and faster data acquisition are always desired. Many outstanding optical technologies are developed based on the fusion of basic optical imaging/spectroscopy mechanisms and novel optical-field engineering implementations. In this talk, I will present our recent progresses on novel bio-imaging techniques and their applications including super-resolution tomographic microscopy, single-lens light sheet imaging and deep-tissue STED super-resolution imaging techniques.


Dr. Shi received his Bachelor's and Master’s degree from Nankai University in 1998 and 2001 respectively. He received his Ph.D degree in Electrical Engineering at the Pennsylvania State University in 2007. Dr. Shi joined faculty members in the Institute of Modern Optics at Peking University in May 2011. His research focuses on developing novel photonic systems and devices based on ultrafast/nonlinear optical principles for spectroscopy, imaging and applications. His recent research interests include super-resolution imaging, nonlinear holography and femto-second frequency comb metrology. He currently serves as a co-chair of conference committee for Ultrafast Imaging and Spectroscopy Conference at SPIE Optics + Photonics annual meeting. In 2013, Dr. Shi was awarded “National Natural Science Funds for Excellent Young Scholar” by National Natural Science Foundation of China (NNSFC). He has authored or coauthored more than 100 refereed journal papers with over 2000 citations (h-index: 27), and has delivered over 50 invited talks/seminars in international or domestic conferences/universities. His scientific achievements also include 13 granted patents.
