From 1971-1998 my students, faculty colleagues and I established the Optical Systems Lab in the Texas Tech University Department of Electrical Engineering. Our research covered several areas of modern optics, including optical information processing/optical computing, optical neural networks,' and image processing in images degraded by sources of signal-dependent noise such as film grain noise, tape noise, and Poisson shot noise at low light levels.
