Biomolecules and nanostructures

The Optical Sciences group studies the interaction of light and matter. Our current focus is on detection and sensing/imaging with an emphasis on the development of integrated photonics. We are part of Twente University's Department of Science and Technology and member of the MESA+ institute.


Amplitude and phase information from imaging using a compound lens

collaboration with Allard Mosk of the COPS group, Univ. of Twente

  • Herman Offerhaus - Chair
  • Jeffrey Reuling - Former member

  • It has been shown in literature that a compound lens that consists of 4 sections can be used to extract phase information from an otherwise "conventional" microscopy image. We want to explore the requirements on the image (in terms of complexity and illumination bandwidth) and test a practical implementation of such a system.
