New publication in Physical Review Applied
A new publication in Physical Review Applied by Dorian Bouchet, Jonathan Dong, Dante Maestre, and Thomas Juffmann, titled "Fundamental Bounds on the Precision of Classical Phase Microscopes"
"A wide variety of imaging systems have been designed to measure phase variations, with applications from physics to biology and medicine. In this work, we theoretically compare the precision of phase estimations achievable with classical phase microscopy techniques, operated at the shot-noise limit. We show how the Cramér-Rao bound is calculated for any linear optical system, including phase-contrast microscopy, phase-shifting ho.." Read more here: https://doi.org/10.1103/PhysRevApplied.15.024047
