Angle resolved polarimetric microscopy

We have a long-standing history in the development of an angle-resolved Mueller matrix polarimeter which can image all 16 elements of the Mueller matrix in either real or Fourier space. The system operates with ferroelectric crystals and optics able to work anywhere in the spectral range from 450 to 700 nm. An example of the […]

Optical Properties of Nanostructures

Vertical nanowire arrays exhibit excellent light absorption due to their unique structure combining individual optical properties with the collective behavior of the arrays. At LPICM, we are working on the optimization of the light absorption inside nanowire arrays. By combining individual nanowire properties with the closely packed periodic arrangement, we have designed double-diameter nanowire arrays […]
