Recently, Advanced Imaging helped organize a panel discussion on “The Future of Imaging,” as part of the International Congress for Imaging Science held at the Center for Imaging Science, Rochester Institute of Technology (Rochester, N.Y.). The discussion, held on May 10, 2006, featured panelists that represented a range of imaging core technologies with familiarity in a variety of specific markets. The panelists included:
The questions focused on both highly tangible short-term developments as well as some long-term speculation on just how far imaging could go as technology marches onward. Advanced Imaging Editor-in-Chief Keith Reid moderated the discussion.
AI: Can you each address, in your independent areas of focus, the more exciting areas of technological development that are coming into place within the next five years?
Kittelberger: I’d like to make my comments about technologies that are here right now. Hot technologies that have changed my field of focus in the past several years. It wasn’t too long ago that when one wanted to create light to use in some way, you had a choice of four or five different ways that you could do that like tungsten halogen technology or various forms of arc technology—xenon and metal halide.
