    • SP1753: Algorithms for Coherent Imaging Systems

      MERL is seeking an intern to work on estimation algorithms for coherent optical imaging. The ideal candidate would be a senior PhD student working in coherent imaging. The candidate should have experience in statistical modeling and estimation.

      A detailed knowledge of optical interferometry and imaging with a focus on either optical coherence tomography, optical coherence microscopy or FMCW LIDAR is also preferred. Strong programming skills in MATLAB or Python are essential. Publication of the results produced during our internships is expected. Duration is anticipated to be 3 to 6 months. This internship is preferred to be onsite at MERL, but may be done remotely where you live if the COVID pandemic makes it necessary.
