Research Summary

Dr. Warde is engaged in research in the following areas: devices and systems for optical information processing, optoelectronic integrated circuit (OEIC) neuro-processors, optical neural network algorithms and architectures, integrated spectropolarimetric imaging sensors, spatial light modulators and microdisplays. The goal of the OEIC neuro-processor work is the development of a compact, versatile, optical neural co-processor that complements the standard PC microprocessor. The spectropolarimetric imaging sensor work is aimed at applications in remote sensing and infrared image contrast enhancement.
