Abstract: Recent advances in photonic devices have enabled a diverse set of ultrafast imaging systems. These systems
are crucial for studying photochemistry and photophysics of fast phenomena. However recently, ultrafast imaging and
time-of-flight imaging are pushing at the forefront of sensing in nonconventional geometries (e.g. imaging through
scattering and beyond occlusion). My talk will cover some of the most recent breakthroughs in
ultrafast imaging systems, components, and methodologies. These breakthroughs enable exotic imaging modalities
that can scan through closed books page by page, see around the corner and sense through large number of random
probes, thus, enabling a wide range of industrial and scientific applications.
