Title
(EN) APPARATUS AND METHOD FOR IRRADIATING A MEDIUM
(FR) APPAREIL ET PROCÉDÉ D'IRRADIATION D'UN MILIEU
Abstract
(EN)
An apparatus includes an irradiating unit, a spatial light modulator configured to modulate a wavefront of an electromagnetic wave, a device configured to receive a signal from a position of the medium by irradiating the electromagnetic wave, and a controller configured to control the spatial light modulator based on the received signal so that the irradiated electromagnetic wave with the modulated wavefront focuses on the position in the medium.
(FR)
La présente invention concerne un appareil qui comprend une unité d'irradiation, un modulateur spatial de lumière conçu pour moduler un front d'onde d'une onde électromagnétique, un dispositif conçu pour recevoir un signal à partir d'une position du milieu par l'irradiation de l'onde électromagnétique, et un dispositif de commande conçu pour commander le modulateur spatial de lumière sur la base du signal reçu de sorte que l'onde électromagnétique irradiée avec le front d'onde modulé se focalise sur la position dans le milieu.
