NNCI Webinar: Micro-optics for Endoscopy and Bio-imaging
February 28, 2024
Webinar: 25th April 2023; 8-10am PT
Compact imaging systems, including endoscopes and microscopes are of critical importance for imaging inside living, behaving animals and humans, with farreaching impact on diagnosis and therapeutics. Miniaturizing these elements
without sacrificing imaging performance is challenging. While fundamentally the performance of an imaging system degrades with reduced volume, technological limitations also preclude miniaturization of optics. Recently, tremendous progress has happened in engineered optics, such as meta-optics and freeform surfaces to dramatically reduce the dimension of imaging systems. This webinar brings together experts in this field to provide an update on the state-of-the-art engineered micro-optics to miniaturize imaging systems for biomedical applications.
