In Boulder, the University of Colorado has completed an exclusive option agreement with Double Helix LLC to develop its 3-D superresolution imaging technique. Developed by Rafael Piestun, a professor at the university who founded Double Helix, the technique combines 3-D optics and a signal postprocessing method used for quality improvement in image processing. It provides multifunctional 3-D superresolution imaging capability to cellular, molecular biology and biophysics laboratories. Double Helix’s technology platform can be applied to a variety of industrial, scientific and consumer applications, including metrology, microscopy and computational digital photography, Piestun said. The company plans to bring the technology to market, initially in microscopy.
- The science of measurement, particularly of lengths and angles.
- The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
