Jalali-Lab Releases Python Code for Image Super Resolution

RAISR (Rapid and Accurate Image Super Resolution) is an image processing algorithm reported by Google Research in 2016. The algorithm creates high resolution images from lower resolution images and is reportedly deployed on Google phones. The source code released on...

Time stretch and its applications

Professor Jalali and collaborators from four continents publish a thorough review of the Time Stretch technology in Nature Photonics. The review article explains how Time Stretch overcomes the speed limitations of electronic digitizers and enables ultrafast...

Deep Learning Microscope

Prof. Bahram Jalali presented a keynote talk entitled "Deep Learning Microscope" at the The 7th International Multidisciplinary Conference on Optofluidics 2017 in Singapore. The talk described our group's success in detection of cancer cells in blood using the time...

Time stretch spectral shearing interferometry

Time stretch can be readily analysed by modelling the band-pass optical signals with low-pass complex envelopes. The transfer function of the dispersive element in the time-stretch system, H(ω), is mainly a phase propagator: in which ϕ(ω) is the phase profile of the...

Kam Yan Hon's paper

Kam Yan Hon’s paper titled “The Third-Order Nonlinear Optical Coefficients of Si, Ge, and Si(1-x)Ge(x) in the midwave and longwave infrared” has been selected to be on the cover of Journal of Applied Physics. Congratulations!

Using a combination of semiconductor theory and experimental results from the scientific literature, we have compiled and plotted the key third-order nonlinear optical coefficients of bulk crystalline Si and Ge as a function of wavelength (1.5-6.7 um for Si and 2.0-14.7 um for Ge).
