Researchers from a Spanish university have developed a portable 3D microscope that achieves a spatial resolution better than the one obtained with other integral microscopes. The invention has a high depth of field, and it has the possibility of implementing the microscope in a very small size compared with conventional Integral microscopes. Specifically, the technology allows the manufacture of portable 3D microscopes with the size of a camera.
The invention is applicable mainly in Bio-medicine, particularly for obtaining images in which the profile of the sample is of interest or in which a depth section view is necessary, and also in Profilometry, for quality control of microelectronics and semiconductors, intra-ocular lenses and microlens testing, forensic science, etc.
The researchers are looking for companies interested in license agreements to manufacture the microscope.
