This project will explore the nature of imaging in conditions characterized by extreme anisoplanatism. Under these conditions each point in an image may be affected by a locally unique blurring kernel implying a violation of the linear shift invariance. Bos and his students will use a combination analysis and extensive experimental data to develop new models and new understanding of this phenomenon. Bos has also proposed using angular diversity as a means of mitigating the effects of extreme anisoplanatism on imaging and beam control problems.
Bos was a 2016 recipient of the Young Investigator Program (YIP) through the Air Force Office of Scientific Research for this project.
