RIF-based real image formation holds the promise of providing advanced technical achievement at relatively modest cost.
Full color optical microscopy with no fundamental resolution limit is expected to be achievable by means of RIF. Expectations are that RIF-based optical microscopy can be developed to exceed the technical capabilities of all alternative microscopy technologies.
RIF-based photonanolithography is expected to achieve leading edge nanolithography at reasonable cost. Keeping pace with Moore's law is a reasonable expectation.
PASSIVE GHOST IMAGING
RIF can be used as an advanced form of passive ghost imaging.
