Computational Optical Imaging
With the advent of digital technology, computation has become an essential part of optical imaging. Computational techniques combined with optical imaging systems have enabled unique capabilities that cannot be achieved by optical imaging systems alone. They can be found in super-resolution microscopy, compressive imaging, lensless microscopy, ultrafast imaging, and quantitative phase imaging. Moreover, rapidly evolving machine learning has added spice to them. This Special Topic on Computational Optical Imaging provides a valuable forum where researchers in the field will be able to share their most recent, novel findings, and understanding of basic principles, advanced techniques, light sources, and applications of computational optical imaging.
