Seminar: “Some properties of speckle from smooth surfaces”, Joseph W. Goodman


Monday, January 30, 2012 11:00 AM to 12:00 PM

Joseph W. Goodman

Stanford University

In this talk I will discuss certain symmetries in the Fourier spectrum of speckle from smooth surfaces and the effects these symmetries have on image speckle contrast. The cases examined are bright-field imaging, dark-field imaging, and single-sideband imaging.

Joseph W. Goodman received the A.B. Degree in Engineering and Applied Physics from Harvard University in 1958, and the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical Engineering from Stanford University in 1960 and 1963, respectively.

From 1958 through 1962, he was a Research Assistant in the Stanford Electronics Laboratories. During 1962 and 1963, he was a post-doctoral Fellow at the Norwegian Defense Research Establishment, under the auspices of the Royal Norwegian Society for Scientific and Industrial Research. He returned to Stanford in 1963 as a Research Associate, a position he held until 1967. In 1967 he was appointed Assistant Professor of Electrical Engineering at Stanford. He was promoted to Associate Professor in 1969 and to Professor in 1972. In 1988 he was appointed Chairman of the Department of Electrical Engineering and named the William E. Ayer Professor of Electrical Engineering. In 1996 he stepped down as Chairman and assumed the position Senior Associate Dean for Faculty and Academic Affairs in the School of Engineering . For the duration of the Summer of 1999, he was the Acting Dean of Engineering. Prof. Goodman assumed Emeritus status on January 1, 2000.
