The problem of reconstructing a depth map from a sequence of differently focused images (focal stack) is called Depth from focus. The core idea of this method is to analyze the sharpness of each pixel and compare it along the axis of the focal stack to estimate the true depth value. This approach has two main drawbacks: it depends on the optics of the camera and on the focus measure operator…

In this work, we characterize the in vivo ocular optics of the human eye with a lateral resolution of 8.6 microns, which implies roughly 1 million measurement points for a pupil diameter of 9 mm. The results suggest that the normal human eye presents a series of hitherto unknown optical patterns. This discovery could have a great impact on the way we understand some fundamental mechanisms of human vision.

In this paper we introduce a new metrology technique for measuring wafer geometry on silicon wafers. Wave Front Phase Imaging (WFPI) has high lateral resolution and is sensitive enough to measure roughness on a silicon wafer by simply acquiring a single image snapshot of the entire wafer.

We present a new wave front sensing technique based on detecting the propagating light waves. This allows the user to acquire millions of data points within the pupil of the human eye; a resolution several orders of magnitude higher than current industry standard ophthalmic devices.

Wavefront phase imaging (WFPI) is a new technique to measure wafer geometry on a full wafer in a single image snapshot providing depth information for every pixel. The number of topography data points for the entire wafer will be proportional to the number of pixels in the image sensor, allowing for millions of data points to be acquired in less than a second.
Wave front phase imaging of wafer geometry using high pass filtering to reveal nanotopography / January 2020

In this paper we show that Wave Front Phase Imaging (WFPI) has high lateral resolution and high sensitivity enabling it to measure nanotopography and roughness on a silicon wafer by simply acquiring a single image of the entire wafer. WFPI is achieved by measuring the reflected light intensity from monochromatic…

Discrete Radon Transform, DRT, is an integral transform that computes the complete set, in terms of slope and intercepts, of line integrals through a two-dimensional domain. It exhibits linearithmic computational complexity and avoids the usage of real numbers thanks to a divide and conquer, or multiscale, approach with a loose definition of discrete lines.

We will discuss here the applications of the Wavefront Phase Imaging sensor (WFPI) on Adaptive Optics (AO) for Astronomy. The WFPI sensor is based on registering the intensity distribution at two different optical planes by a conventional imaging sensor. In the geometrical approximation, the light can be considered as a collection of light rays which bends according to Snellen’s law.
