      Zarrinkhat, Faezeh; Baggio, Mariangela; Lamberg, Joel; Tamminen, Aleksi; Nefedova, Irina; Ala-Laurinaho, Juha; Khaled, Elsayed E. M.; Rius Casals, Juan Manuel; Romeu Robert, Jordi; Taylor, Zachary (Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute (MDPI), 2022-04-22)
      Article
      Open Access
      Improving the longitudinal modes coupling in layered spherical structure contributes significantly to corneal terahertz sensing, which plays a crucial role in the early diagnosis of cornea dystrophies. Using a steel sphere ...
    • Experimental exploration of longitudinal modes in spherical shells at 220 GHz – 330 GHz: applications to corneal sensing

      Submillimeter-wave and THz sensing of cornea leverage the layered tissue structure for assessments of corneal water content and thickness. The cornea is bounded by air on the anterior and an optically thick body of water ...
    • Fourier analysis of submillimeter-wave scattering from the human cornea 

      Zarrinkhat, Faezeh; Lamberg, Joel; Tamminen, Aleksi; Baggio, Mariangela; Ala-Laurinaho, Juha; Khaled, Elsayed E. M.; Rius Casals, Juan Manuel; Romeu Robert, Jordi; Taylor, Zachary (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2021)
      Conference report
      Open Access
      Wave scattering from a human cornea illuminated with a submillimeter-wave Gaussian beam is explored with Fourier analysis. This new approach enabled us to investigate the cornea as a coated sphere rather than a homogenized ...
    • Investigation of radial top-hat electric field distributions for corneal reflectometry using modified Fourier optics method 

      Lamberg, Joel; Zarrinkhat, Faezeh; Tamminen, Aleksi; Khaled, Elsayed E. M.; Taylor, Zachary (2021)

      An efficient Fourier optics method for synthesizing a required incident beam to compute the internal and scattered electromagnetic fields from known spherical surface electric field distribution is presented. © 2021 IEEE
    • Optical path length measurement of spherical dielectric shells with axicon-generated Bessel beams; applications to corneal sensing 

      Baggio, Mariangela; Tamminen, Aleksi; Zarrinkhat, Faezeh; Nefedova, Irina; Aspelin, Arthur; Ala-Laurinaho, Juha; Wallace, Vincent; Brown, Elliott; Taylor, Zachary (2021)
      Conference lecture
      Open Access
      A custom aspheric axicon lens for corneal water content sensing, operating from 220 to 330 GHz, was evaluated with spherical, dielectric shell targets. The lens consisted of a hyperbolic back surface and conical front ...
    • Vector spherical harmonic analysis and experimental validation of spherical shells illuminated with broadband, millimeter wave Gaussian beams: applications to corneal sensing 

      Zarrinkhat, Faezeh; Lamberg, Joel; Tamminen, Aleksi; Baggio, Mariangela; Nefedova, Irina; Ala-Laurinaho, Juha; Khaled, Elsayed E. M.; Romeu Robert, Jordi; Rius Casals, Juan Manuel; Taylor, Zachary (2022-06-03)
      Article
      Open Access
      Coupling to longitudinal modes of thin spherical shells, under Gaussian-beam illumination, was explored with a theoretical method based on Fourier-optics analysis and vector spherical harmonics and was scrutinized with an ...
