Ron Meyers, quantum physicist at the Army Research Laboratory, will discuss a new way of seeing objects that were once hidden from sight. He and his team are credited in taking quantum ghost imaging from a physics curiosity and making it a discipline with many applications. Through computing the quantum effect of objects, this “ghost image” has the ability to appear not by actually seeing it, but by calculating the light patterns coming from it. Using virtually any light source, from a fluorescent bulb, lasers, or even the sun, quantum ghost imaging can give a clearer depiction of objects by eliminating atmospheric conditions that conventional imaging can’t.
