The purpose of this study was to evaluate the feasibility of using a femtosecond pulse laser processing technique to store information on a dental prosthesis. Commercially pure titanium plates were processed by a femtosecond pulse laser system. The processed surface structure was observed with a reflective illumination microscope, scanning electron(More)
We firstly demonstrate the three-dimensional (3D) measurement of a nanometer-sized sphere held in optical tweezers in water using an in-line digital holographic microscope with a green light emitting diode. Suppressing the movement with optical tweezers enabled us to detect the three-dimensional position of a polystyrene sphere with a diameter of 200 nm.(More)
In a stereoscopic full-color LED display by use of a parallax barrier, we discuss optimization of the viewing area, which depends on the width of the black regions between LEDs. Although conventional stereoscopic displays use a parallax barrier to permit the viewer to view stereoscopic images without any special glasses, their viewing area is restricted by(More)
We propose a secure display technique based on visual cryptography. The proposed technique ensures the security of visual information. The display employs a decoding mask based on visual cryptography. Without the decoding mask, the displayed information cannot be viewed. The viewing zone is limited by the decoding mask so that only one person can view the(More)
Holographic femtosecond laser processing with multiplexed phase Fresnel lenses for high-speed parallel fabrication of microstructures is proposed. Use of a spatial light modulator (SLM) allows independent tunability of the diffraction peaks, three-dimensional parallelism, and arbitrary, variable features. The diffraction peaks are made uniform by changing(More)
We envision a laser-induced plasma technology in general applications for public use. If laser-induced plasma aerial images were made available, many useful applications such as spatial aerial AR, aerial user interfaces, volumetric images could be produced. This would be a highly effective display for the expression of three-dimensional information.(More)
Hiding image data with a light-scattering medium is effective as a basic data protection technique. The hidden image data can be observed only by using a low-coherence interference technique and is thus protected from unauthorized access. Unlike an intensity-distributed object, a digital relief object has no intensity distribution, making it possible to(More)
We propose a display technique that ensures security of visual information by use of visual cryptography. A displayed image appears as a completely random pattern unless viewed through a decoding mask. The display has a limited viewing zone with the decoding mask. We have developed a multi-color encryption code set. Eight colors are represented in(More)
In the optical tweezers technique a microdielectric object with a higher refractive index than a surrounding liquid is trapped near the focal point of a laser beam, whereas an object with a lower refractive index is subjected to a repulsive force from the focused beam. We demonstrate that the optical repulsive forces are generated with a focused-beam array(More)
Color digital holography utilizing the Doppler effect is proposed. The time variation of holograms produced by superposing images at three wavelengths is recorded using a high-speed monochromatic imaging sensor. The complex amplitude at each wavelength can be extracted from frequency information contained in the Fourier transforms of the recorded holograms.(More)
