The inherent distortion of a reflective parallel aligned spatial light modulator (SLM) may need compensation not only for the backplane curvature but also for other possible nonuniformities caused by thickness variations of the liquid crystal layer across the aperture. First, we build a global look-up table (LUT) of phase modulation versus the addressed(More)
PURPOSE To compare, as a function of pupil size, the through-focus performance and halo features of four diffractive intraocular lenses (IOLs). METHODS Three diffractive bifocal IOLs (ReSTOR +2.5 D SV25T0, Tecnis +2.75 D ZKB00, and AT LISA +3.75 D 809M) and a diffractive trifocal IOL (AT LISA tri +3.33 D, +1.66 D 839MP) were tested in vitro in a modified(More)
We treat two different problems in the recognition of polychromatic images: (1) recognition of an object with a given shape and color combination; (2) recognition of an object regardless of its color combination. To solve each problem we propose different strategies. The number of filters and the objects to which the filters are matched vary with the(More)
PURPOSE A randomized and double-blinded study design was implemented to assess the stereo-acuity in patients symmetrically implanted with four types of multifocal intraocular lenses (MIOLs), compared to a monofocal lens (control group). In addition, the influence of the type of test employed for the evaluation of stereo-acuity was explored. MATERIALS AND(More)
Recent versions of the International Organization for Standardization (ISO)-based model eye for intraocular lens testing include an artificial cornea whose spherical aberration is chosen to match the value of a human cornea. Aspheric lenses have been used as artificial corneas, but they are expensive and difficult to manufacture. This Letter demonstrates(More)
Two proposals to compensate chromatic aberration of a programmable phase Fresnel lens displayed on a liquid crystal device and working under polychromatic illumination are presented. They are based on multiplexing a set of lenses, designed with a common focal length for different wavelengths, and a multicolor filter that makes each sublens work almost(More)
A Fourier-domain-based recognition technique is proposed for periodic and quasiperiodic pattern recognition. It is based on the angular correlation of the moduli of the sample and the reference Fourier spectra centered at the maximum central point. As in other correlation techniques, recognition is achieved when a high correlation peak is obtained, and this(More)
An antitumor agent thiocoraline is a thiodepsipeptide marine product derived from two Micromonospora sp. strains that inhibits protein synthesis by binding of its key 3-hydroxyquinaldic acid (3HQA) chromophores to duplex DNA. There are at least two potential pathways via which the 3HQA moiety could be biosynthesized from L-Trp. By biochemical(More)
