TAU Imaging Research Platform (PROFI 6)

Imaging encompasses and bridges the physics of light and other electromagnetic waves, optical materials and structures, sensors transforming light into electrical and digital signals, and comprehensive signal processing methods to enable computational image formation, restoration, and automated analysis and interpretation. The goal of this profiling area is to offer advanced imaging as a service across different disciplines and industries and effectively engage all individuals and units that make use of imaging and thus supercharge image-based scientific investigation at Tampere University.

The Imaging Research Platform supports projects that fall into two categories: advanced imaging as a service for Tampere University’s research community and research collaboration on “Light Transport”, which refers to coupling advanced photonics components with computational imaging algorithms and efficient computer graphics rendering. The aim is to accelerate the adoption of state-of-the-art in imaging and help scientists to stop relying on obsolete imaging and image processing methods.
