Séminaire exceptionnel de Meredith KUPINSKI : « Passive Imaging Polarimetry of Outdoor Scenes »

Date : Mercredi 12 juillet, 11h00,
Lieu:  télé-amphithéâtre immersif du PNRB-Beaulieu
Intervenante : Meredith KUPINSKI (Associate Research Professor at College of Optical Sciences, TUCSON, Univ. of Arizona, USA)

Abstract :
Our research vision is to establish quantifiable and reliable knowledge
concerning the utility of imaging polarimetry. This knowledge would have practical
value towards improving image analysis, informing technology investment, and
developing new mathematical models and information metrics. In atmospheric
sciences, polarimetry provides valuable constraints on optical and microphysical
properties of aerosols when a strict accuracy requirement of 0.5% uncertainty in
degree of linear polarization (DOLP) is met. To address this challenge the Jet
Propulsion Laboratory and University of Arizona (UA) developed and built the
Multi-angle Spectro-Polarimetric Imager (MSPI). Ground-MSPI is an 8-band
ultraviolet-visible-near infrared pushbroom camera, measuring polarization at
470, 660, and 865 nm. MSPI advances the state of the art in imaging
polarimeters by measuring intensity and a Stokes parameter simultaneously at a
single pixel. Because of its unprecedented accuracy, MSPI enables new scientific
applications of polarimetric imaging where previously the signal-to-noise or
alignment artifacts of earlier instruments provided poor results. MSPI images
show interesting trends in Angle of Linear Polarization (AoLP) images even when
the DoLP is less than 2%. In this talk GroundMSPI AoLP images are reported
with respect to dependency on surface texture, surface orientation, albedo, and
illumination conditions. Agreement with well-known principles of polarized light
scattering are illustrated, and several special cases are described.

Venez nombreux assister  à ce séminaire en imagerie polarimétrique passive, domaine dans lequel le College of Optical Sciences de Tucson fait figure de référence mondiale.

(Pour info, la salle de téléprésence immersive de l’ENSSAT a été réservée sur ce créneau pour permettre aux collègues Lannionais de suivre facilement le séminaire.)
