Electrical engineering and meteorology professor to present next faculty lecture

11/9/2011 —

Tim Kane, professor of electrical engineering and meteorology at Penn State, will be the featured presenter at the next Faculty Lecture Series event to be held at 12:30 p.m. on Nov. 29 in room 302 at the campus in Center Valley. Kane's lecture is titled: "Active Optical Sensing: A Gallimaufry of Applications." This event is free and open to the public.

Kane's talk will explore various aspects of active optical sensing systems. Emphasis will be placed on engineering challenges of deploying such instruments to the field, paying special attention to the impact of obscurants, turbulence, and interfaces on system performance. Discussion of current applications will serve as illustrative examples (including the occasional segue into the geosciences).

Tim Kane is a Professor of Electrical Engineering and Meteorology at Penn State, as well as a research scientist at Penn State’s Applied Research Lab (ARL). His interests lie in the area of optical remote sensing, primarily active (LIDAR) for use in studying various atmospheric, terrestrial, and oceanic phenomena.
