Fourier Optics using Ultra-fast Lasers for Microscopy and Quantum Simulations

Speaker: Prof. Kannari Fumihiko, Ph.D.
Affiliation: Keio University Shin-Kawasaki Town Campus

Hosted by:  IEEE Photonics Society Los Angeles Chapter

Abstract: In this seminar, I will combine three short presentations about the current work in my research group. The presentations will be on Fourier optics using ultra-fast lasers: (1) Selective nano-CARS (Coherent Anti-Stokes Raman Scattering) microscopy with dual-wavelength nano-focused ultra-fast plasmon pulses; (2) Two-dimensional spatio-temporal focusing of femtosecond pulses and its applications in microscopy; and (3) Programmable large-scale quantum simulator using wavelength-division-multiplexed optical modes. Mr. Suzuki, a Ph.D. student in my research group, will also give a short presentation on his original work, “Single-shot ultra-fast burst imaging with sequentially timed all-optical mapping photography utilizing spectral filtering (SF-STAMP)”.

Biography: Prof. Fumihiko received his B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering from Keio University in 1980, 1982, and 1985, respectively. In 1984, he worked as a research associate at Science and Engineering Research Council (SERC) Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, Oxfordhire, United Kingdom. In 1986, he joined Spectra Technology, Inc., Bellevue, WA, USA as a senior scientist. In 1988, he joined the Department of Electrical Engineering, Keio University, where he is currently a Professor in the Department of Electronics and Electrical Engineering.
