    We found that a focused laser can generate microscopic phase separation in an oil/water system. An oil droplet emerges and grows at the focus of the laser in a water-rich homogeneous medium. In contrast, in an oil-rich homogeneous phase, water droplets spring out in a successive manner from the...

    In this paper we investigate the spatial distribution of measurement noise at sharp edges. A local cylindrical coordinate system is used to decompose the measurement noise at sharp edges into to two components, magnitude and angle. The spatial distributions of these two components are analyzed...
