Performance evaluation of a two detector camera for real-time video

Autors: Benjamin Lochocki, Adrián Gambín-Regadera, and Pablo Artal
Journal: Applied Optics
Volume: 55, Issue 36
Year: 2016
ISBN: 1559-128X

Single pixel imaging can be the preferred method over traditional 2D-array imaging in spectral ranges where conventional cameras are not available. However, when it comes to real-time video imaging, single pixel imaging cannot compete with the framerates of conventional cameras, […]

Intraocular scattering compensation in retinal imaging

Autors: Dimitrios Christaras, Harilaos Ginis, Alexandros Pennos, and Pablo Artal
Journal: Biomedical Optics Express
Volume: 7, Issue 10
Pages: 3996-4006
Year: 2016
ISBN: 2156-7085

Intraocular scattering affects fundus imaging in a similar way that affects vision; it causes a decrease in contrast which depends on both the intrinsic scattering of the eye but also on the dynamic range of […]

Night myopia is reduced in binocular vision


Autors: Emmanuel Chirre; Pedro M. Prieto; Christina Schwarz; Pablo Artal
Journal: Journal Of Vision (JOV)
Volume: 16 (8):16
Pages: 1-10
Year: 2016

The accommodative ciliary muscle function is preserved in older humans


Autors: Juan Tabernero, Emmanuel Chirre, Lucia Hervella, Pedro Prieto and Pablo Artal
Journal: Scientific Reports
Volume: Rep. 6:25551
Pages: 1-7
Year: 2016
ISBN: 2045-2322


Presbyopia, the loss of the eye’s accommodation capability, affects all humans aged above 45 50 years old. The two main reasons for this to happen are a hardening of the crystalline lens and a reduction of the ciliary […]

Performance evaluation of a sensorless adaptive optics multiphoton microscope

Autors: Martin Skorsetz, Pablo Artal, Juan M. Bueno
Journal: Journal Of Microscopy
Volume: 261 (Issue 3)
Pages: 246-258
Year: 2016
ISBN: 0022-2720



A wavefront sensorless adaptive optics technique was combined with a custom-made multiphotonmicroscope to correct for specimen-induced aberrations. A liquid-crystal-on-silicon (LCoS) modulatorwas used to systematically generate Zernike modes during image recording. The performance of the instrument was evaluated in samples providing different nonlinear signals […]

Image Formation in the Living Human Eye


Autors: Pablo Artal
Journal: The Annual Review of Vision Science
Volume: 1
Pages: 1 – 17
Year: 2015
ISBN: 978-0-8243-5101-4


The human eye is a relatively simple optical instrument that imposes the first performance limits on the visual system. This review describes the main optical properties of the eye: geometric image formation, aberrations, and intraocular scattering. The article also […]
