Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


Protein crystals down to 30μm in size have been detected using a scanning polarization interferometer with a 568nm laser source. The size and anisotropy of the crystals have been retrieved from the phase anisotropy measurements.
