TRANSLATING ADVANCED RESEARCH INTO THE TECHNOLOGIES OF TOMORROW The Bernard M. Gordon Center for Subsurface Sensing and Imaging Systems is a multi-university National Science Foundation Engineering Research Center (NSF-ERC) founded in 2000. Its mission is to develop new technologies to detect hidden objects and to use those technologies to meet realworld subsurface challenges in areas as diverse as noninvasive breast cancer detection and underground pollution assessment.
The center's multidisciplinary approach combines expertise in wave physics (photonics, ultrasonics, electromagnetics), multisensor fusion, image processing, and 3D CAT-scan-like reconstruction and visualization. The Gordon Center operates... read more >>
Professor, Electrical and Computer Engineering
Prof. David Castañón received his B.S. degree in Electrical Engineering from Tulane University in 1971, and his Ph.D. degree in Applied Mathematics from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1976.
