Glare-reducing approaches could lead to a type of noise-canceling camera for microscopy, astronomy imaging

If you have ever turned on your car's high beams while driving through fog, you've seen glare in action. As the extra light reflects off the fog, it becomes even more difficult to see what lies ahead. In compelling new research, two scientific teams have developed innovative methods for counteracting glare and reducing unwanted light much like noise-canceling headphones eliminate unwanted sound.
