Cameras capable of capturing videos at a trillion frames per second allow to freeze light in motion, a very counterintuitive capability when related to our everyday experience in which light appears to travel instantaneously. By combining this capability with computational imaging techniques, new imaging opportunities emerge such as 3D imaging of scenes that are hidden behind a corner, the study of relativistic distortion effects, imaging through diffusive media and imaging of ultrafast optical… Expand
A light-in-flight single-pixel camera for use in the visible and short-wave infrared.
TLDR
A single-pixel camera with a temporal resolution of 200 ps in the visible and short-wave infrared wavelengths is presented, used here to study the transit time of distinct spatial modes transmitted through few-mode and orbital angular momentum mode conserving optical fiber. Expand
Intensity-corrected 4D light-in-flight imaging.
TLDR
A model is developed that can accurately invert the observed data and reconstruct the true intensity-corrected optical path of a laser pulse as it travels in air and is demonstrated to be valid by observing the photon arrival time and intensity distribution obtained from single-photon avalanche detector (SPAD) array data.

A microwave imaging system that uses an array of transmitters and a single receiver operating in continuous transmit-receive mode and is demonstrated through-wall real-time imaging, tracking, and observe second-order images from specular reflections is reported. Expand
Compressed ultrafast tomographic imaging by passive spatiotemporal projections.
TLDR
Comp compressed ultrafast tomographic imaging (CUTI), which passively records 2D transient events with a standard streak camera, and is exhibited as a new imaging mode universally adaptable to most streak cameras. Expand
Coherent Control of Light for Non-Line-of-Sight Imaging
Non-line-of-sight (NLOS) imaging relies on collecting light that is rendered incoherent from the multiple scattering events and is then post-processed to provide an estimate of the hidden scene. HereExpand
