About the Project

High-speed imaging is a powerful tool for capturing ultrafast transient phenomena in a variety of applications such as microfluidics, fluidic dynamics, combustion, and ballistics studies. Our research at AOCIL is focused on new high-speed imaging technology that can reach millions frames/s framerate at very low cost (

The project will research high-speed imaging technology that involves the following elements:

  • Computational imaging technique and Machine learning based signal processing.
  • Imaging system synchronisation and integration.
  • Optics design of high-speed camera system.
  • Applications of high-speed imaging technology in various fields.

We are looking for motivated candidates with strong physics/optics/image signal processing/electronics engineering/computer science/machine learning background.
