(1) Bionic polarization vision
Polarization vision, which could accurately obtain all kinds of information of the interested targets in scattering medium, is a new research direction in the field of machine vision. The research work is mainly on carrying out high-speed and high-resolution micro-nano grating array polarization imaging, multiband polarization joint encoding and decoding, bionic multiband polarization visual model, multiband polarization visual information analysis, bionic polarization light integrated navigation and so on.
(2) High-dimensional image reconstruction
Obtaining images with high-spatial, spectrum, and polarization resolution through post-processing is one of the important development directions of spectropolarimetric remote sensing, which also brings new challenges to the theory of traditional image reconstruction. And in this field, researches on compressed spectropolarimetric imaging combined with sparse sampling, multi-band image super-resolution reconstructions, computing spectral imaging, multi-objective joint optimization and so on have been carried out.
(3) Multi-band photoelectric detection system
Carrying out research work mainly on different directions such as target detection, tracking, recognition of visible light, infrared, multispectral and polarized image, and designing different imaging system combined with engineering practice.
