Deep insights with quantitative imaging

A model-based imaging method developed by the ILM provides information from the surface, but also on the structure and content of objects.

The ILM has developed a model-based imaging technique that not only allows the determination of the three-dimensional topology and surface roughness, but also the microstructure and content of objects in different layers.

The illustration of a hand demonstrates what the new method can do: The right half of the figure shows the strength of light absorption at 500nm, and the blood vessels are clearly visible.
