Advanced Secure Optical Image Processing for Communications

Professor Ayman Al Falou


New image-processing tools and data-processing network systems have considerably increased the volume of transmitted information such as 2D and 3D images with high resolution. Thus, more complex networks and long processing times become necessary, and high image quality and transmission speeds are requested for an increasing number of applications. To satisfy these two requests, several, either numerical or optical solutions, were offered separately. Advanced Secure Optical Image Processing for Communications explores both alternatives and describes research works that are converging towards optical/numerical hybrid solutions for high-volume signal and image processing and transmission. Without being limited to hybrid approaches, the latter are particularly investigated in this book in the purpose of combining the advantages of both techniques. Additionally, pure numerical or optical solutions are also considered since they emphasize the advantages of one of the two approaches separately.

About Editors

Ayman Al Falou received his PhD in telecommunications and signal processing from the French National Telecommunication Graduate Engineering School of Brittany (ENSTB France) and of the University of Rennes. Since 2000, he has been a professor of telecommunications and signal processing at ISEN Brest (Institut Supérieur de l'Electronique et du Numérique). At ISEN, he created the Optical Signal and Image Processing Laboratory (VISION). His research interests are signal processing and image processing, telecommunications, optical systems, optical processing, opt-electronics, lasers, and polarization. He is a senior member of OSA, senior member of IEEE, senior member of SPIE and elected member of the Institute of Physics.
