July 2021: Poincaré Webinar Series on Optical Polarization and Related Phenomena: "Vectorial adaptive optics" by Martin Booth
Monthly speakers explore topics derived from Henri Poincaré’s work on optical polarization and demonstrate applications of polarization techniques. This month's title is "Vectorial adaptive optics" by presenter Martin Booth.

Join the series’ chairs and moderators – Thomas A. Germer, National Institute of Standards and Technology (USA); Jessica C. Ramella-Roman, Florida International University (USA); and Tatiana Novikova, École Polytechnique (France) – and be part of the discussion.

Tuesday, 27 July 2021, 6:00 am PT (1300 UTC): Vectorial adaptive optics
Speaker: Martin Booth
Department of Engineering Science, University of Oxford, UK

Abstract: Adaptive optics have been widely used for the measurement and correction of phase aberrations in optical systems. Reconfigurable devices, such have liquid crystal spatial light modulators, are commonly employed for adaptive phase correction, but have also been applied in various ways to polarisation control. We discuss methods for extending adaptive optical capabilities to control of the full vectorial state of light (including polarisation and phase) and the use of adaptive feedback control of vectorial fields.

Prof Booth is Professor of Engineering Science at the University of Oxford. His research involves the development and application of adaptive optical methods in microscopy, laser-based materials processing and biomedical imaging. In particular, his group have developed numerous implementations of adaptive optics for aberration correction in high and super resolution microscopes. He has held a range of significant research fellowships and grants and has been the recipient of several awards, including in 2014 the International Commission for Optics Prize. He has over 150 publications in peer-reviewed journals, over twenty patents, and has co-founded two spin-off companies.
