Awards: Joseph was on a winning team at MIT's hackathon to build a better breast pump.

Welcome: Welcome to our newest student Rachel Chin, from the Mechanical and Industrial Engineering department. She'll be working on the bone project.

Academic Progress: Congratulations to Zhenahua and Joseph on completion of their Ph.D. degrees this summer. Also to Zetong on their MS degrees. Zetong is working at Rebellion Photonics in Houston,TX.

New Freshman: Congratulations to Langston Archer, our former summer student, now beginning his freshman year at NU.

Welcome Back: Ali V. has returned from his summer at home and is working on his Ph.D., finishing his confocal work and starting on light and sound. Jimmy is back from his summer class in Taiwan, with Chuck and Joseph. He's continuing his work on second-harmonic imaging. Mahmoud worked in the group last year. He's back now working on the PHase project.

New Position: Chuck has been appointed vice-chair of the ECE department, as of 1 July.

Marriage: Congratulations to Joseph on being married in June.

Welcome to the Optical Science Laboratory (OSL) at Northeastern University. Led by Associate Professor and author of Optics for Engineers, Charles DiMarzio, the OSL is one of the laboratories affiliated with Mechanical and Industrial Engineering, CenSSIS, and the Center for Subsurface Sensing and Imaging Systems, at Northeastern University. The Center is an NSF Engineering Research Center, working toward a unified approach to subsurface imaging tasks. The OSL is particularly interested in those imaging techniques which involve optics (especially coherent detection), multi-modal imaging where light is used in combination with another type of wave such as microwave or ultrasound, and hyperspectral imaging. Our applications include biological and medical imaging, and remote sensing of the environment. OSL's goals are to provide a facility for advanced research in these areas in order to address the needs of our research sponsors, and to train the next generation of researchers for industry, academia, and the government.
