Research on Optical Superresolution Imaging at the Institute of High Performance Computing (IHPC)Singapore

The Science and Engineering Research Council of Singapore has recently launched an ambitious initiative involving several of its research institutions, aiming at the realization of a superresolution imaging system that is capable of resolving 100 nanometer objects in the visible range. The role of the IHPC team in this project is to provide expertise in electromagnetic modeling and simulation, and to demonstrate a virtual computational prototype of such a system. This includes a study of the physical foundations of the imaging process and a systematic investigation of the reality impact on such a system, including granularity, losses and their possible mitigation, dynamic range and time response of both computational and physical imaging systems. This presentation will describe the research activities conducted, and insights gained during the past eight months by the superresolution imaging team, spearheaded by the presenter at IHPC.
