Waves and Wave-Based Imaging in Virtual and experimental Environments


WAVES interdisciplinary research objectives include (but are not limited to) the development of innovative techniques to localize precisely, image and monitor scattering objects (this goal is reflected e.g. in the research topics of early-stage researcher: ESR1.1, ESR1.2, ESR1.3); to exploit the properties of timereversed acoustics (ESR2.1, ESR2.2, ESR2.a); to localize sources and image 3-D environments with a limited number of sensors, exploiting “full-waveform” information (ESR1.a, ESR3.1).

The bulk of our proposed research activities form two work packages that will explore current and interconnected issues in wave-based scattering and imaging theory (WP1) and experiments (WP2).

One of the objectives of WAVES is to encourage interaction between these two approaches, and WAVES ESRs that mainly participate in one of these two WPs are expected to closely interact with colleagues from the other.

A dedicated work package (WP3) guarantees an efficient pipeline from theory-and-ideas through laboratories to real-world-applications.
