Lihong Wang - World's Deepest-Penetration and Fastest Optical Cameras

Wednesday November 28, 2018 8:00 PM
Location: Beckman Auditorium

In his talk, Lihong Wang will discuss the development of photoacoustic tomography, which allows scientists to peer deep into biological tissue. He will also talk about his lab's development of compressed ultrafast photography that records 10 trillion frames per second. At 10 orders of magnitude faster than commercially available technologies, it can capture light propagation, the fastest phenomenon in the universe.

This event is free; no tickets or reservations are required. A minimum of 700 seats will be available on a first-come, first-served basis, beginning at 7:30 p.m. Reserved section tickets are available to members of The Friends of Beckman Auditorium and the Caltech Associates, and to Caltech alumni.

About the Speaker

Lihong Wang is the Bren Professor of Medical Engineering and Electrical Engineering at Caltech in the Division of Engineering and Applied Science.

About the Series

Since 1922, The Earnest C. Watson Lecture Series has has brought Caltech's most innovative scientific research to the public. The series is named for Earnest C. Watson, a professor of physics at Caltech from 1919 until 1959. Spotlighting a small selection of the pioneering research Caltech's faculty is currently conducting, the Watson Lectures are geared toward a general audience, as part of the Institute's ongoing commitment to benefiting the local community through education and outreach. Through a gift from the estate of Richard C. Biedebach, the lecture series is able to highlight an assistant professor's research each season.
