Integrated Optical Sciences
Biomolecules and nanostructures
The Optical Sciences group studies the interaction of light and matter at the nanoscale.
We do this by exploring ways to shape light and its environment. It's what we call
active and passive control. Our current focus is on the interaction of light with
biomolecules and nanostructures. We are part of Twente
University's Department of Science and Technology and member of the
Amplitude and phase information from imaging using a compound lenscollaboration with Allard Mosk of the COPS group, Univ. of Twente
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.
