Title: Terapixel Cameras

Over the past half century, supercomputing speeds, communications bandwidth and storage costs have all improved by factors of >1 million. Since the dawn of digital photography, however, cameras have been stuck in the megapixel era. 1 million x improvement in imager capacity is possible, however, through integrated design of novel optics, efficient electrical processing and intelligent data networks. This talk reviews lens design for heterogeneous array cameras, discusses array camera data management and considers a roadmap for super camera development.

Prof. Takashige Omatsu Japan

Professor, Molecular Chirality Research Center, Chiba University

Title: Structured light evolves materials science

Optical vortex, possessing an orbital angular momentum (OAM), twists irradiated materials to establish chiral structured materials on the nano-/micro-scale. We review exotic physical phenomena via interaction between OAM of light and matters, and advanced technologies based on optical vortex illumination.
