UC-Boulder Technique Optioned
The University of Colorado at Boulder has completed an exclusive option agreement with Double Helix LLC, also of Boulder, to develop the university’s 3-D superresolution imaging technique. Developed by Rafael Piestun, a professor at Boulder 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. “We are looking forward to bringing this technology to the market, initially in microscopy and, later, to more markets, including metrology and digital optics,” said Leslie Kimerling, a founding partner of Double Helix.
- 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...
