A system includes a camera and a projector for capturing spatial detail having resolution exceeding that afforded by the imaging optics, and recovering topographic information lost to the projective nature of imaging. The projector projects a spatial pattern onto the scene to be captured. The spatial patterns may include any pattern or combination of patterns that result in complex sinusoidal modulation. Spatial detail such as texture on the objects in the scene modulate the amplitude of the spatial pattern, and produce Moir fringes that shifts previously unresolved spatial frequencies into the cameras optical passband. The images may be demodulated, and the demodulated components may be combined with the un-modulated components. The resulting image has spatial detail previously inaccessible to the camera owing to the band-limited nature of the camera optics. A spatial pattern may also be projected and received by the camera to estimate topographic information about the scene.

The present invention provides a method for the rapid monitoring of biological analytes in a point-of-care setting by providing a smart phone; providing a sample chamber; providing a sample; providing a dark box with a smartphone holder attached to the dark box top with the camera opening positioned about the aperture, adding a biological specimen suspected of containing a biological analyte in the sample chamber; adding a bis(2,4,6-trichlorophenyl) oxalate, an imidazole and a fluorophore to the sample chamber to react with the biological analyte; placing the sample chamber into the dark box; generating an emission from the fluorophore in response to the reaction with the biological analyte; and recording a set of time-lapse images of the emission with the smartphone.

An integrated circuit has a first scan cell segment, a second scan cell segment connected to one or more hidden content, and a scan cell circuit connected to the first scan cell segment and the second scan cell segment. The scan cell circuit alternatively provides access to the first scan cell segment and the second scan cell segment based on a state of the scan cell circuit.
