ESE Seminar: "Synthetic Optical Holography"

Mar 23
10 a.m.
Green Hall, Room 0120

​P. Scott Carney, PhD, Professor Electrical and Computer Engineering at University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, will present.

Abstract: Holography is an efficient, multiplex method of acquiring phase across a whole image. I report on the marriage of holography and scanning microscopy, a new development that improves the speed of micro and nanooptical imaging by orders of magnitude while simplifying the experiment. I will show the method applied to scanning near-field microscopy with 10nm resolution and confocal imaging with subcellular resolution. We demonstrate coherent post-processing including refocusing.
