Workshop on BRDF & speckle

The first workshop of BxDiff will be held at University Jean Monet in St Etienne (France), on Friday 10 December 2021.

It will be a great opportunity to learn about BRDF measurement and speckle – an important issue we are facing now in BRDF measurement when we reduce the bandwidth or when we move to high angular resolution. The apparition of speckle masks the BRDF of the surface. Experts will show the state of the art on this topic.

The agenda : 
    9:00   – Welcome
    9:30   – Gael Obein (LNE-CNAM) | Evolution of BRDF measurement : when the speckle effect arose
    10:00 – Pierre Chavel (Institut Graduate School) | The speckle theory (1) : an introduction
    10:45 – Pierre Chavel & Anthony Cazier (Institut d’Optique Graduate School and University Saint-Etienne) | Educational demo with optical bench
    11:30 – Pierre Chavel | The speckle theory (2) : advanced modelling
    12:30 lunch
    14:30 – Loic Denis (University of Saint-Etienne) | Removing speckle while maintaining resolution : methods in radar imaging.
    15:15 – Thomas Labardens (LNE-CNAM) | Speckle effect in high resolution BRDF measurements
    16:00 – Discussion : is the BRDF of a surface the expectation of the signal measured?
    17:00 – end
