Abstract

In this erratum, we correct Fig. 4 of our Letter [Opt. Lett. 46, 1740 (2021) [CrossRef]  ]. This does not change the scientific conclusions of the original Letter.

On the fourth page of [1], the author identified the calculating errors in the values of the horizontal coordinates of the profiles diagrams in Figs. 4(c3)–4(e3) and that under Fig. 4(b3).

In the profiles diagrams shown in the previous Fig. 4, the values of the horizontal coordinates are $0 - 185\,\,\unicode{x00B5}{\rm m}$ [the profiles diagram below Fig. 4(b3)] and $0 - 370\,\,\unicode{x00B5}{\rm m}$ [Figs. 4(c3)–4(e3)]. These data are calculated based on the pixel size of the sensor and the number of pixels occupied by the profile lines. But in a microscope imaging system, the actual data of the profile lines should be divided by the magnification of the objective after the pixel size is multiplied by the number of pixels.

Therefore, in this erratum, we have corrected the errors in the horizontal coordinates of the profiles diagrams in Figs. 4(c3)–4(e3) and below Fig. 4(b3). The specific amendments are as follows: the actual value of the horizontal coordinates should be $0 - 18.5\,\,\unicode{x00B5}{\rm m}$ [the profiles diagram at the bottom of Fig. 4(b3); the original data is divided by the objective magnification $10 \times$] and $0 - 9.25\,\,\unicode{x00B5}{\rm m}$ [Figs. 4(c3)–4(e3); divide the original data by the objective magnification $40 \times$].

In the previous error version, due to the miss of the divisor (objective magnification), the data corresponding to the horizontal coordinates of the profiles diagrams did not correspond to the drawn scale bar, which will cause readers’ confusion. Therefore, Fig. 4 should be corrected as Fig. 1. The authors apologize for this error and state that this does not change the scientific conclusions of the article in any way.
