Engineers have been at Russia's Plesetsk launch site for a month now, ticking off the jobs on the 'to do' list so that the Copernicus Sentinel-5P satellite is fit and ready for liftoff on 13 October. With the satellite now fuelled, the team has passed another milestone. Fuelling a satellite is a particularly delicate operation. Hydrazine is extremely toxic so only a few specialists wearing 'scape' suits remain in the cleanroom. Once filled with 82 kg of hydrazine, the satellite was weighed...

NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope helped an international team of astronomers find that an unusual object in the asteroid belt is, in fact, two asteroids orbiting each other that have comet-like features. These include a bright halo of material, called a coma, and a long tail of dust. Hubble was used to image the asteroid, designated 300163 (2006 VW139), in September 2016 just before the asteroid made its closest approach to the Sun. Hubble’s crisp images revealed that it was actual...

In the first act of lunar exploration, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin were major characters. In setting its sights on the Moon, ESA hopes to bring many more actors to this off-world stage. By testing the market for transport services to the Moon, ESA aims to push the limits of technology and create new models of space business. Touching down on the Moon was a monumental moment in human history. Eight short years and enormous resources took humankind to the lunar surface, initially for le...

Astronomers have used ALMA to capture a strikingly beautiful view of a delicate bubble of expelled material around the exotic red star U Antliae. These observations will help astronomers to better understand how stars evolve during the later stages of their life-cycles. In the faint southern constellation of Antlia (The Air Pump) the careful observer with binoculars will spot a very red star, which varies slightly in brightness from week to week. This very unusual star is called U Antliae and...

The Sun's recent activity has caught the interest of scientists and space weather forecasters worldwide, highlighting the need to keep a watchful eye on our star and its awesome power. On 6 and 10 September, our Sun produced a pair of solar flares, the strongest observed in over 10 years. They were accompanied by huge eruptions of billions of tonnes of matter into space. While many such eruptions fall back onto the hot surface, these two did not and became 'coronal mass ejections' (CMEs) -...

NASA's Hubble Space Telescope has observed a planet outside our solar system that looks as black as fresh asphalt because it eats light rather than reflecting it back into space. This light-eating prowess is due to the planet's unique capability to trap at least 94 percent of the visible starlight falling into its atmosphere. The oddball exoplanet, called WASP-12b, is one of a class of so-called "hot Jupiters," gigantic, gaseous planets that orbit very close to their host ...

    Education

     

    PhD candidate

    Dates: January 2009 – (June 2012)

    Topic

    one-shot dense pattern projection for measuring moving surfaces.

     

    At the moment my research activity is focused on the problems of 3D retrieval from Structured Light (SL). I started my PhD with a deep analysis of the state of the art in SL [1]. Then, I focused on one-shot pattern, able to work in moving scenarios. Among them I studied the so called fringe pattern, which extract dense 3D structure by a frequency analysis of the recovered image. I proposed a new fringe pattern for absolute dense reconstruction [2]. Posteriorly, I developed a new fringe analysis algorithm to improve the accuracy of depth extraction [3]. I am currently working on the development of a one-shot DeBruijn based algorithm which includes the techniques of fringe analysis to obtain a dense and accurate 3D retrieval [4]. Also, I have proposed a pseudo-random pattern for stereo-vision applications [5].

    Besides, I have studied the problem of projector calibration, and implemented a new algorithm for projector-camera planar-based calibration [6], [7].

    Institution and professor

    My supervisor is the prof. Joaquim Salvi, of the Department of Arquitectura I tecnologia de computadors, University of Girona (Spain). Joaquim Salvi is considered an expert in SL, having more than 1250 references most of them in SL and projector and camera calibration.

    Moreover, I have done two international stages to study specific sub-topics of my PhD:

     

     

    Mobility stage

    Dates: November 2011 – March 2012
