Structured Light Fields Book Description :

The optical trapping of colloidal matter is an unequalled field of technology for enabling precise handling of particles on microscopic scales, solely by the force of light. Although the basic concept of optical tweezers, which are based on a single laser beam, has matured and found a vast number of exciting applications, in particular in the life sciences, there are strong demands for more sophisticated approaches. This thesis gives an introductory overview of existing optical micromanipulation techniques and reviews the state-of-the-art of the emerging field of structured light fields and their applications in optical trapping, micromanipulation, and organisation. The author presents established, and introduces novel concepts for the holographic and non-holographic shaping of a light field. A special emphasis of the work is the demonstration of advanced applications of the thus created structured light fields in optical micromanipulation, utilising various geometries and unconventional light propagation properties. While most of the concepts developed are demonstrated with artificial microscopic reference particles, the work concludes with a comprehensive demonstration of optical control and alignment of bacterial cells, and hierarchical supramolecular organisation utilising dedicated nanocontainer particles.

Visual Sensing and its Applications Book Description :

“Visual Sensing and its Applications: Integration of Laser Sensors to Industrial Robots” provides comprehensive and up-to-date coverage of research and development on this robotic vision system. A laser-structured light is the main concern in discussions of visual sensing. Also addressed in this book are all components of the robotic vision system and an emphasis on how to increase the accuracy of the system using three levels of calibration. This includes calibration of the vision system (eye calibration), calibration of eye-to-hand configuration and calibration of robot kinematics (hand calibration). With the integration of the laser sensors to industrial robots numerous applications in the field of robotic welding, grinding, machining, inspection, and palletizing are illustrated based on practical engineering projects in order to demonstrate how the visual sensing is performed. The book will serve as a valuable resource for researchers and engineers in the areas of robotics and machine vision. Dr. Zhongxue Gan is a vice chairman and chief scientist of the ENN Group, China.

Photonic Applications Based on the Use of Structured Light Book Description :

Structured light beams, this is, beams whose phase changes from point to point in the transverse plane, provides with an alternative tool to search for new applications, or simply to expand the capabilities of current applications where commonly used light beams have encountered physical limitations. Applications can be found not only in the field of optics but also in areas as diverse as astrophysics, telecommunications and quantum computing, to mention some. In this thesis we put forward three new applications in which the use of structured light beams plays a crucial role. In the field of optical remote sensing, the Doppler effect is widely used to measure the component of the velocity along the line of sight, \textit{i.e.}, the longitudinal component. The Doppler effect alone, does not allow to measure the transverse component. In this context, structured light beams provides with a tool that makes this possible: its structured phase. The main idea resides in the fact that this beams, reflected from transversally moving targets, are frequency shifted proportional to the velocity of the target. The information of the velocity can be extracted using interferometric methods, in a similar way to the longitudinal Doppler shift. In a first experiment we validated this theoretical concept for two particular cases: rotation and longitudinal motions along the transverse plane of illumination. Some current existing techniques to measure small layer thicknesses are based on the use of common-pant interferometers. In particular the self-referencing type, in which both the reference and the signal beams are generated locally. A reflective surface is engineered in the form of a ridge or cliff, in such a way when illuminated with a Gaussian beam half of it is reflected from the top and the other half from the base. This two "new beams" acquire a phase difference that depends on the height of the ridge and the wavelength of the illuminating source. This phase variations are det
