Abstract

Fourier plane imaging (FPIM) and Fourier ptychographic (FPM) microscopy techniques were used to image photonic crystals. A computer-controlled hemispherical digital condenser provided required sample illumination with variable inclination. Notable improvement in image resolution was obtained with both methods. However, it was determined that the FPM technique cannot surpass the Rayleigh resolution limit when imaging photonic crystals.
