Coherent Fourier scatterometry reveals nerve fiber crossings in the brain
In January, Miriam Menzel visited the optics group to work on an experiment to measure scattering patterns in monkey and human brain tissue using coherent Fourier scatterometry. By transmitting a non-focused laser beam through unstained histological brain sections, the scattering patterns for small tissue regions (with diameters of 0.1–1 mm) were obtained. These patterns show accordance with the simulated scattering patterns. In this way we showed that is possible to reveal individual fiber orientations for up to three crossing nerve fiber bundles, with crossing angles down to 25°.

Unique coherent Soft X-Ray source arrives in Delft
A unique Soft X-Ray source was recently installed at the Optics Research Group of the department of Imaging Physics. This source will play a key role within the LINX-consortium, which TU Delft leads. The aim of this consortium is to generate new techniques to image extremely small features in 3D, for example on next generation computer chips.
