Project Description

This project is about building algorithms that can build cameras which can see around corners using light. This seemingly impossible task is achieved by using cutting edge hardware and algorithms. This project entails implementing and experimenting with cutting edge algorithms and hardware. Watch this video for an idea of the current state of the art: https://www.ted.com/talks/ramesh_raskar_imaging_at_a_trillion_frames_per_second Applicants should demonstrate strong fundamentals of electromagnetics theory, coding (python), and math. This is a cutting edge research project and will require applicants to push the boundaries of what they think they can achieve. We are looking for highly motivated applicants oriented towards conducting research.

Pre-requisites

Applicants who have taken one of the following courses preferred: 6.014/6.640
