For the paper, "Bioinspired Polarization Imaging Sensors: From Circuits and Optics to Signal Processing Algorithms and Biomedical Applications"

Representing an integration of work in biology, mathematics, optics, materials science, and electronics, Timothy York and his colleagues present recent developments in bioinspired polarization
imaging sensors and their applications to biomedicine in their
paper "Bioinspired Polarization Imaging Sensors: From Circuits
and Optics to Signal Processing Algorithms and Biomedical Applications." To emulate the highly efficient sensory systems found
in biology to better detect features that are hard to see with the
human eye, the paper, which appeared in the October 2014 issue
of the Proceedings of the IEEE (vol. 102, no. 10, pp. 1450-1469),
presents a bioinspired complimentary metal-oxide semiconductor
(CMOS) current-mode polarization imaging sensor based on the
compound eye of the mantis shrimp. The work presented in the
paper has important implications for applications such as noninvasive neural recording, tissue evaluation, and tumor detection.
