  • Patent number: 11378483
    Abstract: A method or system of determining integrity of a closed container comprising at least one gas. The determination is based on applying a mechanical force to at least one side of the container and transmitting a light signal across at least a portion of an outside surface of at least one side of the container using an optical sensor. The optical sensor is sensitive to the at least one gas inside the container. Detecting a transmitted light signal and determining, based on the detected light signal, if the at least one gas inside the container has been detected outside of the container.

  • Publication number: 20210048365
    Abstract: The disclosure relates to system and method for determining the integrity of a container containing at least one gas. The disclosure relates to an environment with a lower absolute gas pressure than the pressure inside the container, a light source and a detector arranged to transmit a light signal to the detector through the environment, or a volume connected to the environment, but outside the container, and wherein a control unit for determining, based on said transmitted light signal being detected, if a level of the at least one gas inside the container is altered in the environment or the connected volume.

  • Patent number: 9423342
    Abstract: A method based on digital holography for determining parameters of at least one erythrocyte is provided, said method comprising the steps of: constructing an interference pattern comprising a wave front representative of said at least one erythrocyte arised from the interaction of said at least one erythrocyte and electromagnetic radiation, reconstructing amplitude-and phase information representative of said at least one erythrocyte wave front from said interference pattern and determining the mean corpuscular volume and/or mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration and/or oxygen saturation and/or mean corpuscular hemoglobin of at least one erythrocyte by combining phase information and amplitude information representative of said at least one erythrocyte.

  • Publication number: 20120196316
    Abstract: Method for analyzing a sample comprising at least one ovum or embryo, the method being based on digital holographic imaging, the method comprising the following steps: creating at least one object beam and at least one reference beam of light, where said at least one object beam and said at least one reference beam are mutually coherent; exposing said sample to said at least one object beam; superimposing said at least one object beam that has passed through said sample with said at least one reference beam and thereby creating an interference pattern; detecting said interference pattern, called hologram; reconstructing phase and/or amplitude information of object wavefront from said interference pattern; and constructing at least one ovum or embryo analysis image and determining at least one ovum or embryo quality showing parameter from said phase and/or amplitude information.

  • Patent number: 7948632
    Abstract: A non-destructive method and device for analyzing a sample comprising transparent living and/or dead cells, by 5 means of a digital holographic microscope, where the sample (8) is exposed to light from a laser (2). The light that travels through the cells in the sample will experience a difference in the optical path length compared to the surrounding media and the wave front that emerges from the 10 cells will thus be phase shifted. This distortion can be detected in the digital hologram, which is reconstructed from the interference pattern detected by a digital sensor (17), such as a CCD or a CMOS, as phase differences or phase shifts and thereby creating a digital hologram. The 15 phase shift of each element of the hologram is then used for analyzing the characteristics of the cells in the sample.

  • Publication number: 20070109555
    Abstract: A method and device for determining refractive index of an object compared to a refractive index of a surrounding medium. The object is exposed to a laser object beam and the scattered light interferes with a laser reference beam to obtain a hologram. The hologram is analyzed for phase information, and based thereon, it is determined if the refractive index of the object is higher or lower than the refractive index of the surrounding medium.
