Project Experiences

-GMT(Giant Magellan Telescope) Principal Test (01/09~06/09)
Resposibilities: optimizing centroid algorithm of Point Source Microscope (PSM) software. Help with the interferometry testing of CGHs (Computer Generated Hologram).

-Tensile Stresses in Ring-mounted Glass lenses (04/09~present)
Abstract: the project is to analyze the high stress contact between glass lenes and metal mounts using Finite element model and to predict its effect on the glass strength with experimental data.

-High-speed Polarization Analysis and Monitoring (11/07~04/08 Graduation Design)
Abstract:A photopolarimeter system is specially designed for real-time polarization analysis and monitoring. The division-of-amplitude method is used in the instrument structure. And LabVIEW software enables real-time display of instantaneous SOP or tracking polarization changes over time.
Responsibilities: Optical-path Design; Single Chip Microcomputer programming; LabVIEW Programming.

-Color Deviation and Optimizing Interpolation of Moire Patterns from CCD (06/07~10/07)
Responsibilities: Designed the general experiment plans and procedures; Coducted the Matlab programming to simulate the experimental phenomenons, and compared each interpolation algorithms.
