A multilinear (tensor) algebraic framework for multifactor manifold learning with applications to image science - $100,000
This project will develop a multilinear algebraic framework for computer vision and image science. By exploiting the nonlinear algebra of higher-order tensors, this new framework will yield powerful new computational methods and algorithms for detection and recognition with applications from biometrics and visual surveillance to medical imaging.

Optical propagation through impenetrable materials using MEMS (OPTIMUM) - $50,000
These researchers will explore techniques for light transmission through dynamically changing, thin materials that normally appear opaque using fast, segmented deformable mirrors. The technique will advance important imaging science applications ranging from biological microscopy through dense tissue for medical research to covert surveillance through opaque screens for defense and security.

Smart data acquisition for nanoscale imaging - $100,000
Imaging using high-energy electrons will become increasingly important in the future. Electrons damage biological and organic matter, leading to distorted images with low signal-to-noise ratio. This project will explore new paradigms in data acquisition, nonlinear signal and image processing, more sophisticated data 'de-noising' and image analysis in combination with
