    System to Image the Human Eye Corrects for Chromatic Abberations

    The Sabesan lab have created the Badal Longitudinal Chromatic Aberration Compensator, a tool that can accurately focus multiple colors on the same retinal layer simultaneously. This could lead to new insights into visual halos, glare and color perception.  The team's recent paper reporting the first measurements and correction of chromatic abberation in the eye has been published in the Optical Society's high-impact journal called Optica and other media.
