SPS Chapter Research Award
Finding the shape of glowing objects from polarimetric measurements.
The SPS chapter of Lamar University proposes a robust in-lab method for spatially resolving the shape of any glowing object from the study of light emitted, and test it with a new optical system (including lenses, polarizers, sensors, and step motors). The topic was inspired from polarimetric measurements of supernovae.Project leader(s):
