Rolland group obtains first 3D, high-resolution images of recently developed type of optical lenses

Prof. Jannick Rolland and researchers in her group at the Institute of Optics have applied a sophisticated imaging technique to obtain the first 3D, high-resolution pictures of a recently developed type of optical lenses. They say that using Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) during the manufacturing process allows them to significantly improve the quality of these new and promising lenses.

The results are published in the April 23 edition of Scientific Reports, a Nature Publishing Group journal. See the official UofR press release here, including a link to the paper.
