Shadow Effects in IPSII Imaging
Using Interference Pattern Structured Illumination Imaging (IPSII), we can image objects on the order of wavelengths of light in a way that circumvents conventional limitations. One of the challenges of current instantiations of IPSII, is that "shadows" are cast in the interference patterns when imaging objects with a significant axial extent. These shadows are characterized primarily by the absence of interference, not necessarily the absence of laser illumination. I will present simulations and experimental verification that we have done to show the effects these shadows have in the resulting images.
