Microscopy

Microscopy is the technical field of using microscopes to view samples and objects that cannot be seen with the unaided eye (objects that are not within the resolution range of the normal eye). There are three well-known branches of microscopy, optical, electron, and scanning probe microscopy. (Wikipedia.org)

  • A New Technique in Scanning Near Field Optical Microscopy Used for Investigations on the Biological Samples

    We present a new technique based on apertureless near field microscopy using a femtosecond Ti:sapphire laser that is used for the investigations on biological samples. This technique is integrated in a multimodal microscopy system. The beam of a Ti:sapphire laser is focused by using the objective of an inverted microscope on the surface sample. Electric field of the laser beam oscillates in a parallel plan with the sample surface and electric dipoles created by the electric field emit a radiation that is modulated by the AFM tip. This radiation is collected by the objective of the s-SNOM module, placed above the sample being sent to the detector. The images shown a better good contrast compared to those in s-SNOM.

  • Fractal analysis correlation of the images from scanning laser microscopy techniques and atomic force microscopy

    The laser scanning laser microscopy techniques and atomic force microscopy give complementary information at micro- and nano-scales regarding the surface samples. By using a multimodal microscopy system, having more optical techniques based on far field and near field and an atomic force microscope the same area of the investigated samples. The system is able to acquire the optical images having hundred nanometers or nanometers resolutions and surface topography at nanoscale. Fractal analysis is a very useful tool for quantifying and simulating the complex patterns encountered in microscopic images. The objective of this work is to perform a study of the complex optical and morphological features of certain biological tissues by using fractal geometry. It is shown a correlation between optical images and surface morphology regarding fractal geometry and that fractal dimension is a good candidate to quantify the different images.

  • Nanoscale imaging by using label free microscopy techniques

    The objective of our work is connected with label free investigations at nanoscale by using a new multimodal microscopy system by using near field label free techniques. The system includes the techniques with hundred nanometers resolution and with few nanometers resolution, being able to image simultaneously the same sample area giving complementary information. Our system includes also an atomic force microscope. To image the human skin samples has been used two label free techniques working at nanoscale: scattering scanning near optical microscopy(s-SNOM) and second harmonic generation using an apertureless-scanning near optical microscope (SHG-SNOM).

  • Hydroxyapatite surface charge investigated by scanning probe microscopy

    It is well known that electrical properties such as local electrostatic charge distribution at biomaterial surface plays a significant role in biological interactions. The methods currently employed in measuring surface charge in biomaterials such as zeta potential or potentiostatic titration, however, can only measure global charge distribution in macroscopic and colloidal state of biomaterials. By using scanning probe microscopy techniques we investigated the surface charge domains placed on the hydroxyapatite surface. Scattering near field optical microscopy (s-SNOM) was used to image electrostatic charge trapped at pre-existing and irradiation induced defects within these domains, while phase imaging in atomic force microscopy was used to image the carbon contamination. The two techniques can be used for nanoscale imaging.

  • Investigations at nanoscale by using fluorescence in apertureless scanning near field microscopy

    Fluorescence apertureless near-field optical microscopy (FASNOM) gained interest from researchers in the last years because of its promising capabilities: sub-wavelength resolution and ability to exploit the chemical sensitivity of fluorescent tags. FASNOM exploits the fact that metallic structures in close proximity of a fluorophore or a photoluminescent sample have complex effects on fluorescence, inducing changes in both fluorescence lifetime and emission intensity. The detection concept of FASNOM is based on the periodic perturbation of the interaction between a fluorescent sample and the excitation beam by using a sharp probe. The aim of the present work is to present the tip enhanced near field fluorescence and topography characterization of collagen by using an atomic force microscope upgraded with an apertureless microscope.

  • Nanoscale Investigations of Optical Fiber by Using Scattering Scanning Near-Field Optical Microscopy

    Scattering Scanning Near-field Optical Microscopy (s-SNOM) is proposed as a powerful tool for quantitative analysis of cross-sectional area of optical fibers. The s-SNOM images are processed pixel-by-pixel in order to map the refractive index of the optical fibers' cross-sectional surface. s-SNOM imaging technique is widely known for its capability to reach nanoscale resolution, therefore the obtained maps of refractive index based on s-SNOM data are as well characterized by nanoscale resolution. Combined with Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM) images simultaneously acquired with s-SNOM, this technique proves to be a powerful tool not only for characterization of refractive index profile of optical fibers, but also for quality check of optical fibers (or other types of optical waveguides) at nanoscale. Particularly, in this study we prove the capability of s-SNOM to map the refractive index of cross-sectional area of a Panda-style polarization- maintaining single mode optical fiber.

  • Photonic-Corral-Mode Quantum Ring Lasers investigated by Laser Scanning Microscopy and Near Field Microscopy

    Ultralow threshold microcavity lasers are ideal candidates for high-density optical interconnect light sources. Although they have been extensively studied for the last decade, muA-level electro-pumped quantum confined lasers are still under investigation. Photonic-corral-mode quantum ring (PQR) lasers with the linewidth narrower than 0.55 generate micro-to-nano-ampere thresholds, and become ideal for CMOS-driven high-density emitter arrays for intra-chip optical interconnect as well as other applications such as displays. By using laser beam induced current technique (LBIC) technique in laser scanning microscopy (LSM) we investigated the photocurrent confinement in the laser structure. The photocurrent map gives the possibility to analyze the laser structure uniformity. The emission spectra of a PQR laser was investigated by using of microscopic optical fiber probe.

  • Integration of scanning near field polarization optical microscopy and atomic force microscopy for investigation of magnetic and ferroelectric materials

    We demonstrate application of integration scanning near-field optical microscopy and atomic force microscopy for investigation of magnetic and ferroelectric materials. This integration is made by using innovative optical and micromechanical components. Optical measuring head with cantilever holder was designed for both near-field optical microscopy and atomic force microscopy modes. Hollow pyramid cantilever with aperture at the tip was designed for registration both optical signal and tip=sample interaction forces. Cantilever aperture was made by ion beam at the center of pyramid. Same probe was used for both topography and domain structure visualization of magnetic samples. Bi: YIG-thin films topography and domain structure were investigated by this method as well as by conventional magnetic force microscopy (MFM). In integrated method of scanning nearfield polarization optical microscopy and atomic force microscopy samples were excited through cantilever aperture by tightly focused linearly polarized laser beam. Magneto- optical effect of the rotation of polarization plane of transmitted light depends on domain orientation. Visualization of magnetic domains was performed by detecting cross polarized component of transmitted light. Near field map of magnetic domains provides direct information of the magnetic moment of domains unlike MFM image which provides distribution of magnetic force gradient. Moreover, non-magnetic hollow-pyramid probe prevents sample from possible disturbances by internal magnetic moment of the MFM probe. Comparison of results obtained by near field polarization microscopy and conventional MFM was performed. We demonstrate possibility of investigation of topography and domain structure ferroelectric materials by integration method of near-field optical microscopy and atomic force microscopy.

  • Bag-of-features approaches for combined classification of laser scanning microscopy and spectroscopy data sets

    The Bag-of-Features (BoF) paradigm represents a solid solution for the automated classification of digital images. Several BoF approaches for classification of microscopy data have been reported in the past decade, but their number is very low considering the potential that BoF methods hold with respect to this subject. In this contribution we discuss strategies for using BoF architectures for the automated classification of 1D and 2D data sets collected using Laser Scanning Microscopy techniques.

  • Image fusion for photonic quantum ring laser structures investigated by confocal scanning laser microscopy

    Confocal Scanning Laser Microscopy (CSLM) allows the acquisition of image stacks, representing optical sections on the volume of the specimen. An image corresponding to an optical section will in some cases contain defocused, low contrast or saturated regions for the areas of the sample which are not in focal plane. In the case of the Photonic Quantum Ring (PQR) laser structures, it is important to have images consisting of regions of uniform quality in order to observe morphological details that are linked to the photocurrent confinement. In this purpose we have developed an image fusion method, which based on a stack of CSLM images will output a fused image consisting of square regions from different images in the stack. In this paper we present the image fusion algorithm that we have used and the results that we have obtained on PQR laser structures.
