The white matter of the brain contains all the connections between different parts of the grey matter. Many diseases especially affect the brain’s white matter. For instance, the white matter tracts are destroyed in neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer’s disease. Accordingly, there is a large interest in features of the white matter to...

The main focus of this thesis is on modeling acoustic wavefield propagation and implementing imaging algorithms for breast cancer detection using ultrasound. As a starting point, we use an integral equation formulation, which can be used to solve both the forward and inverse problems. This thesis contains three main topics: forward modeling,...

A combined use of fluorescence and light microscopy is a powerful approach to further increase our understanding in biological systems of structure-function relations at cellular and sub-cellular levels. The power of fluorescence microscopy (FM) is to spectrally resolve and visualize individual proteins with endogenous or immuno- fluorescent...

In monitoring the quality of drinking water with respect to the presence of hazardous bacteria, there is a strong need for in-line sensors that allow quick identification of bacterium species at low cost. Raman spectroscopy is a very promising label-free optical technique capable of discriminating bacteria species based on their molecular...

Advances in light microscopy lead to breakthroughs in biology. To further unravel the mysteries of life and the mechanisms behind diseases, better microscope techniques are needed to validate biological hypotheses. This thesis presents how integration of optics and computing leads to better images for quantitative microscopy and how quantitative...

Fluorescence microscopy is a well-established platform for biology and biomedical research (Chapter 2). Based on this platform, fluorescence lifetime imaging microscopy (FLIM) has been developed to measure fluorescence lifetimes, which are independent of fluorophore concentration and excitation intensity and offer more information about the...

Detection and sizing of closed cracks is challenging as these cracks exhibt a transparent behavior when interacting with ultrasonic waves. To face this challenge, high amplitude ultrasonic waves are used by which harmonics are generated at the crack interface. Exploting this non-linear response, the probability of detection and sizing of such...

In this thesis, for the first time ever, it is demonstrated that 196 beams out of a single electron source can be finely focused onto the sample using the electron optics of a standard single beam SEM. During this PhD thesis, a multi beam scanning electron (MBSEM) was designed and built. The thesis starts with a explanation of the driving force...

For better management of cardiovascular disease, it is of utmost importance to categorize the subjects into different risk groups. This categorization can be made based on cardiovascular risk factors including the family history of the subject. Imaging techniques play an increasing role in order to assess ardiovascular risk factors. In this...

Phase-Contrast Tomography (PCT) is becoming an important technique for nondestructive, in-situ characterization of soft and hard condensed matter. This thesis sheds light on our progress in developing novel tomographic reconstruction algorithms in combination with in-situ experimental approaches that employ propagation-based PCT. These...

Knowledge of the structure of biological specimens is crucial for understanding life. Cryo-electron microscopy (cryo-EM) permits structural studies of biological specimen at their near-native state. The research performed in this thesis represents one of two subprojects of the FOM industrial partnership program with FEI Company. The common aim...

Demi, L. (author)
The design and optimization of medical ultrasound modalities require a method for modeling the propagation of pressure wave fields through biomedical tissue. This method needs to be capable of modeling various phenomena, e.g. nonlinear propagation, attenuation, and scattering caused by arbitrary inhomogeneities in the acoustic properties of the...

Full waveform inversion is a tool to obtain high-resolution property models of the subsurface from seismic data. However, the technique is computationally expens- ive and so far no multi-dimensional implementation exists to achieve a resolution that can directly be used for seismic interpretation and characterisation. In this thesis we discuss a...

Terahertz light is electromagnetic radiation, similar to visible light. The photons that the terahertz light is comprised of carry a much smaller amount of energy compared to the visible light photons. Unlike visible light, terahertz light can pass through materials like plastic, cardboards, wood etc.; a very useful property which enables it to...

In the recent years, precision measurement techniques in the field of optical science have improved with the advances in the phase stabilization of femtosecond lasers. Due to their unique properties, phase stabilized femtosecond lasers, also known as frequency comb lasers, are used as a versatile tools, not only for time and frequency metrology,...

Carpal instability occurs when the wrist bones assume a pathological posture, e.g. due to ligament rupture as a result of trauma. Ligament rupture cannot be diagnosed reliably directly, as current medical imaging modalities do not provide sufficient soft-tissue contrast (X-ray, CT) or lack a sufficiently high resolution (CT, MRI). Ligament...

Flexural waves play a significant role for the radiation of sound from plates. The analysis of flexural wave fields enables the detection of sources and transmission paths in plate-like structures. The measurement of these wave fields can be carried out indirectly by means of near-field acoustic holography, which determines the vibrational wave...

A theory of optical trapping at low Numerical Aperture (NA) is presented. The theory offers an analytical description of the competition between the stabilizing gradient and destabilizing scattering force. The trade-off can be characterized by a single dimensionless trapping parameter, which increases with bead size to wavelength ratio ?/?, m,...
