How physics and modern computers have revolutionized imaging This will be a talk for the nonspecialist that covers the physics behind methods in modern 3-D imaging and the basic approach they all share. The signals we can measure often bear no obvious resemblance to the objects we try to investigate. Physics connects the underlying object to the signals by a path that sometimes may be followed back to the object. Finding the way back, i.e. solving the "inverse problem" reveals the object structure. We will discuss CT, MRI, and other popular methods, technologies recently developed and commercialized by my collaborators and me, and efforts ongoing at nanoGUNE. Bio: Prof. Carney holds a BS in Engineering Physics from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign (1994), and a PhD in Physics from the University of Rochester (1999). He joined the faculty of UIUC Electrical and Computer Engineering in 2001. He is a theorist with a research interests in inverse problems, imaging, coherence theory and other branches of optical physics.
