Workshop "Recent developments in wave propagation and imaging in complex media"

November 7-9, 2012 - Institut Henri Poincaré, Paris

This workshop, devoted to recent developments in the fields covered by the GDR MésoImage, marked the end of its first 4-year term. Its main purpose was to discuss the new results obtained by the GDR members and their foreign colleagues during the last 4 years. The main attention was paid to topics that are at the heart of GDR : imaging and non-invasive probes of random media, mesoscopic physics of waves, Anderson localization, and the impact of nonlinearity on wave propagation in complex media. At the same time, we highlighted new, emergent research directions that did not exist or were at a very early stage of development 4 years ago, when the GDR was created : wave-front control for optical imaging through opaque, multiple-scattering media, quantum optics in the presence of disorder, possible uses of random media in solar energy applications, cloaking in seismology, diffusing wave spectroscopy with seismic waves, etc.

The workshop started on Wednesday, November 7, at 9:00 and ended on Friday, November 9, at 16:15. A poster session was organized on Thursday afternoon. We offered lunches to all workshop participants and organized a social dinner on Thursday evening (November 8). Participation in the workshop was free of charge.
