Re: Thermal Camera and Mona Lisa?

We chose to demonstrate PicoCam with the Mona Lisa, rather than a direct IR natural image at night, for three reasons:  1) We wanted to compare our image quality with that reported by Gill et al. (2012), 2) We wanted the precise laboratory control of a computer-controlled display, and 3) The first PicoCam was built to be sensitive to visible light (rather than IR) for ease in manufacture and sensor transduction.  More extensive image reconstruction results at various wavelengths will be reported in the scholarly literature at the earliest opportunity.

It sounds like combining the sensor with gratings turns this into essentially a "fly on the wall" camera system.. 8-)

With the granularity, multiple images with camera movement would be necessary to increase resolution, ..

thank you Rick, waiting for some news from teh trillion sensor summit...BTW, Rambus camera is a nice departure from memory IP litigation business they were doing while back

@chanj0: in addition to thermal imaging and in combination with that, there could be applications in motion sensing / detection for the PicoCam.

@Rick: I hope you got to attend interesting sessions at Trillion Sensors summit. I am looking forward to more from this event I could not attend.

Multiple imagers for 3d and motion estimation are nice tricks. Think of similar apps where synthetic aperture radar uses movement and arrays to create much better resolution. Would work here too I think...

Thermal Camera and Mona Lisa?

I can see the application of such camera to thermal camera. After all, you may not care about the sharpness of an image at night than know there is a heat object, potentially animal, there. What strike me is if Rambus is envision the picocam to be a thermal camera, why would they choose Mona Lisa as a sample image than picking a night vision in a park?

What could you do with this little imager?

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
