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)
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 determine the energy distribution between the distance and near images formed in a model eye by spherical and aspheric apodized diffractive multifocal intraocular lenses (IOLs). METHODS The IOL was inserted in a model eye with an artificial cornea with positive spherical aberration (SA) similar to that of the human cornea. The energy of the(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)
Non-mydriatic retinal imaging is an important tool for diagnosis and progression assessment of ophthalmic diseases. Because it does not require pharmacological dilation of the patient's pupil, it is essential for screening programs performed by non-medical personnel. A typical camera is equipped with a manual focusing mechanism to compensate for the(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)
Retinal imaging plays a key role in the diagnosis and management of ophthalmologic disorders, such as diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma, and age-related macular degeneration. Because of the acquisition process, retinal images often suffer from blurring and uneven illumination. This problem may seriously affect disease diagnosis and progression assessment. Here(More)
