Adaptive wavefront shaping microscope objective lens

Project description

Taming the waves and diving in deep: breaking the depth-to-resolution barrier

The electromagnetic spectrum is populated by photons with different energies that can be harnessed for imaging specimens. X-rays were among the first methods used to see deep inside living tissues, and light microscopes are the prototype for specimens on slides, where light diffusion is minimal due to the shallow depth. Advanced optical imaging techniques relying on photons in the visible, ultraviolet or infrared range are breaking the depth barrier, and the EU-funded Wavelens project is planning to adapt them for next-generation microscopy. Implementing dynamic modulation of the optical wavefront, the technology will be integrated into a standard microscope lens to significantly enhance customer access and company market share.
