Title: Physical Layer Network Security based on Optical Stealth Communication and Three-Dimensional Microscopic Imaging for Medical Applications




This presentation includes two parts. The first part of this presentation will focus on a stealth signal transmission system and its applications of private and anonymous communications. It is the first time that the amplifier noise has been deployed to carry signals. The signal is hidden in the noise with terahertz bandwidth. Since the bandwidth of the noise is far beyond the limit of any available receivers, the signal and noise cannot be directly detected. The stealth transmission system reaches Gigabit transmission rate and is compatible with the commercial optical communication networks. This technique can be applied for anonymous communication networks and introduces zero system redundancy. The second part of this presentation will focus on three-dimensional microscopic imaging and its medical applications.




Ben Wu received his Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from Princeton University in 2015. He is currently an assistant professor at Rowan University. His research interest includes optical communications and optical imaging. He received the IEEE Photonics Society Graduate Student Fellowship in 2015, the Newport Award of Excellence in Photonics in 2015, the Princeton Wu Prize for Excellence in 2014, the Princeton Engineering School Excellence in Teaching in 2013, and the Best Undergraduate Thesis Award (top 1 out of 60 students) from Nankai University in 2008. He has published more than 40 articles in international journals and conferences. He is also an active reviewer for 19 journals and conferences.
