New paper in Applied Optics with a q-plates designs with non-linear angular distribution of the principal axis


APPL OPTWe published a new paper in Applied Optics entitled Q-plates with a nonlinear azimuthal distribution of the principal axis: application to encoding
binary data. This work has been developed with out colleagues at San Diego State University.

Here we use the optical system developed at SDSU to control two linear polarization components to encode q-plates where the angular orientation of the principal axis is varied spatially with a nonstandard distribution. We consider two cases: first, where the principal axis distribution is like an inverse-tangent function of the azimuth; and second, where it displays linear and flat segments. This last case is proposed as a new method for encoding binary data into the azimuthal lobes of the vector beam.

The use of the spatial light modulator based system allows these new and exotic q-plate designs without the difficulty of fabricating individual plates. Experimental results are presented.

New paper in Journal of Biophotonics about imaging biological tissues based on the indices of polarimetric purity


IPPsWe participated in a new paper published in Journal of Biophotonics entitled Polarimetric imaging of biological tissues based on the indices of polarimetric purity.

This work has been developed by our friends at Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona in the frame of the common coordinated collaboration project.

In this work we use the indices of polarimetric purity (IPPs) for the inspection of biological tissues.

Compared with standard polarimetric images of biological samples, IPP-based images lead to larger image contrast of some biological structures and to a further physical interpretation of the depolarizing mechanisms inherent to the samples.

Jocelyn Bell invested Doctor Honoris Causa at University of Valencia and Pascuala Garcia reads the Laudatio


HC JBellThe astrophysicist Jocelyn Bell, who discovered pulsars, has been invested Doctor Honoris Causa at University of Valencia in November 10th, 2017.

Pascuala Garcia, who promoted this recognition through the Faculty of Physics, read the Laudatio.

In 2015, Jocelyn Bell delivered a conference at the Faculty of Physics of University of Valencia, in the series of seminars coordinated by Pascuala Garcia. Together with this event, Jocelyn Bell visited the exhibition Women in Light Science’, where she is one of the twelve honoured women scientists.

New paper in Optical Engineering about parallel multiple imaging with a polarization diffraction grating


OptEngA new paper entitled Multichannel polarization imaging with a polarizing diffraction grating has been published in Optical Engineering. The work has been done in collaboration with our friends at the Department of Physics at San Diego State University (SDSU).

The work demonstrates a method to generate multiple imaging with polarization state diversity, based on the use of  a polarization diffraction grating design. The polarization grating is demonstrated in an SLM-based optical system developed at SDSU. We demonstrate the generation of six diffraction orders that encode six different polarization transformations. This technique can be useful for producing single-shot imaging polarimeters.
