World’s first Gemlike 3D microscope lens developed


Allen Yi and Lei Li from Ohio State University have developed a single fixed lens that allows microscopes to capture three-dimensional images. Earlier with the help of 3D microscopy, it required the use of multiple lenses, or a single camera that moves around the subject; however this new gemlike 3D microscope has one lens that’s fixed in place on an existing microscope. The prototype lens looks like a gem cut for a ring, and is about the size of a fingernail.

Subject to its commercialization, this lens can then be used in the manufacturing of microelectronics and medical devices, for medical testing, and to replace more complex machine vision system.
