We have recently reported on a method to design at will the spatial profile of transmitted coherent light after propagation through a strongly scattering sample, exploiting wavefront shaping in combination with a transmission matrix approach. In this paper, we explore experimentally and theoretically the ability of this approach to generate foci whose full width at half maximum are smaller than the diffraction-limited speckle grain size, using (Bessels) beam variations implemented with virtual annular filters.

Conference Presentations are recordings of oral presentations given at SPIE conferences and published as part of the conference proceedings. They include the speaker's narration along with a video recording of the presentation slides and animations. Many conference presentations also include full-text papers.
