    A method for creating a light-scattering microprofile on the outer side of SiC substrates in order to diminish the light extraction loss caused by the effect of total internal reflection in light-emitting AlGaIn/GaN structures has been further developed. It is suggested to use thin photoresist...

    We describe a new designed multispeckle correlation spectroscopy (MSCS) setup which uses a CCD-camera as optical detector. Due to the simultaneous detection of many coherence areas (speckles) we get a much better statistic than in standard dynamic light scattering (DLS) measurements. Furthermore...

    A new method is proposed for nanoscale hard x-ray measurements. This method uses a reflection on a heavy-metal wire that functions as a single slit with a nanoscale aperture for a parallel x-ray beam. This “nanoslit” can be used to perform high-spatial-resolution measurements of the...

    The article focuses on the new detection scheme for static random-access memory (SRAM) pattern using scattered light collection. It says that scattered light detection, which is determined by signal-to-noise ratio, overcomes the resolution barriers in the wafer inspection (WI) systems that...

    Imaging with optical resolution through turbid media is a long sought-after goal with important applications in deep tissue imaging. Although extensively studied, this goal was considered impractical until recently. Adaptive-optics techniques, which can correct weak aberrations, are inadequate...
