Computational Imaging for Exoplanet Detection and Characterization

Recent development in computational imaging has led to a series of great discoveries in astronomy. Integrated with advanced computational tools, modern telescopes continue pushing the boundaries of astronomical imaging, making it possible to observe many scientific phenomena in extreme conditions. In this talk, I will introduce a series of innovative computational imaging tools we have developed for exoplanet direct imaging, including 1) a high-contrast coronagraph and extreme adaptive optics (ExAO) system for exoplanet direct imaging in space telescope, and 2) a generative AI enable fast inference algorithm for exoplanet’s orbit fitting and atmospheric composition characterization.
