Advanced Sensing Laboratory

    The Advanced Sensing Laboratory headed by J. Scott Tyo focuses on nonconventional electromagnetic sensing methods, such as polarimetry, spectral imagery, coherence imaging and terahertz imaging, with a special interest in the physics-based exploitation of image data that capitalizes on knowledge of the wave-target-sensor interaction to maximize performance in sensing applications. Other research subjects include polarimetric display, modulated polarimeter theory and operation, long-wavelength infrared imaging polarimetry, high-power microwave sources, and compact antennas for high-power microwaves.
