Since the detection of nanoparticles is a major issue in nano sciences, we have developed two instruments for the fast imaging of individual nano objects. The first one is based on a spatial modulation of the sample using an incoherent dark field illumination and a multiplexed lock in detection. The second instrument uses digital heterodyne holography. Both instruments make it possible to achieve a high signal-to-noise ratio and therefore to detect very low signal.
