New way of recording holographic images 

A new method for recording 3D holographic images has been developed jointly by researchers from the Faculty of Physics of the Warsaw University of Technology and the University of Bialystok. The method is based on the use of an optomagnetic medium with a memory effect and sequential algorithms devoid of classical matrix calculations. Thanks to the research results obtained, it will be possible to overcome the barrier of resolution and speed of computing and displaying holographic images.

Retina and choroid without secrets

Modern imaging of ocular tissues would not be possible without OCT. However, it is not a perfect technique - it has its limitations. Researchers at the International Centre for Eye Research (ICTER) have found a way to eliminate some of those limitation. They have developed Spatio-Temporal Optical Coherence Tomography (STOC-T). The team's latest research results confirms that with this method, the retina and choroid can be viewed with high resolution at arbitrary depths.
