Abstract
The communication of humans with their surrouding is achieved through their senses and the related organs. Visual communication using the eyes is made possible because the various sources of light, natural i.e. the sun or the lightning, or artificial such as Lasers, emit electromagnetic radiation which is either reflected or scattered by surfaces. This radiation received by eyes is processed in the brain where the images of the environment are developed. The luminous processing can be either macro- or microscopic. The macroscopic processing is the result of light coming from the sun or from wide range lamps, while the microscopic results from light coming from wide range lamps, mercury lamps, lasers or electron beam. The microscopic processing is the subject we are dealing with in this presentation.
