Main description

Cutting-edge quantitative phase imaging techniques and their applications

Filled with unique, full-color images taken by advanced quantitative phase imaging (QPI), Quantitative Phase Imaging of Cells and Tissues thoroughly explores this innovative technology and its biomedical applications. An introductory background on optical imaging and traditional optical microscopy is included to illustrate concept development. The book explains how various visualization modalities can be obtained by numerical calculations. This authoritative resource reveals how to take full advantage of the unprecedented capabilities of QPI, such as rendering scattering properties of minute subcellular structures and nanoscale fluctuations in live cells.

Coverage includes:

  • Groundwork
  • Spatiotemporal field correlations
  • Image characteristics
  • Light microscopy
  • Holography
  • Point scanning QPI methods
  • Principles of full-field QPI
  • Off-axis full-field methods
  • Phase-shifting techniques
  • Common-path methods
  • White light techniques
  • Fourier transform light scattering (FTLS)
  • Current trends in QPI
