High-density optical data storage requires high-numerical-aperture (NA) lenses and short wavelengths. But, with increasing NA and decreasing wavelength, the depth of focus (DOF) decreases rapidly. We propose to use pure-phase superresolution apodizers to optimize the axial intensity distribution and extend the DOF of an optical pickup. With this kind of… (More)
This correspondence reports our study of a novel motion estimation technique for image sequence coding by exploiting the uncompensable characteristic of the motion field. Preliminary results indicate that this technique not only reduces the estimation burden drastically but also improves the subjective picture quality and signal-to-noise ratio (SNR).
We propose the use of a phase-shifting apodizers to increase focal depth, and we study the axial and radial behavior of this kind of apodizer under the condition that the axial intensity distribution is optimized for high focal depth.
Zirconium dioxide provides an exceptional prototype material for studying the redistribution of the polaron holes and its magnetic coupling with their nearby anions owning to the difference oxygen binding behavior in the monoclinic phase. Here, we perform a comprehensive study of the p-electron magnetism in the nitrogen doped 2 × 2 × 2 monoclinic ZrO2 based… (More)
—In order to obtain a super-resolution non-diffraction beam, we propose a fast searching method to design a ternary optical element combined with the circularly polarized light. The optimized results show that a beam with a spot size of 0.356λ and depth of focus of 8.28λ can be achieved by focusing with an oil lens of numerical aperture N A = 1.4 and… (More)
We present a concealing method in which an anti-point spread function (APSF) is generated using binary optics, which produces a large-scale dark area in the focal region that can hide any object located within it. This result is achieved by generating two identical PSFs of opposite signs, one consisting of positive electromagnetic waves from the zero-phase… (More)
