Enhanced quantitative phase imaging in self-interference digital holographic microscopy using an electrically focus tunable lens.
Self-interference digital holographic microscopy (DHM) has been found particular suitable for simplified quantitative phase imaging of living cells. However, a main drawback of the self-interference DHM principle are scattering patterns that are indu

High-speed line-field confocal holographic microscope for quantitative phase imaging.
We present a high-speed and phase-sensitive reflectance line-scanning confocal holographic microscope (LCHM). We achieved rapid confocal imaging using a fast line-scan CCD camera and quantitative phase imaging using off-axis digital holography (DH) o

Photothermal laser speckle imaging.
The analysis of speckle contrast in a time-integrated speckle pattern enables visualization of superficial blood flow in exposed vasculature, a method we call laser speckle imaging (LSI). With current methods, LSI does not enable visualization of sub

Cell morphology-based classification of red blood cells using holographic imaging informatics.
We present methods that automatically select a linear or nonlinear classifier for red blood cell (RBC) classification by analyzing the equality of the covariance matrices in Gabor-filtered holographic images. First, the phase images of the RBCs are n

Fast wide-field photothermal and quantitative phase cell imaging with optical lock-in detection.
We present a fast, wide-field holography system for detecting photothermally excited gold nanospheres with combined quantitative phase imaging. An interferometric photothermal optical lock-in approach (POLI) is shown to improve SNR for detecting nano

Accurate single-shot quantitative phase imaging of biological specimens with telecentric digital holographic microscopy.
The advantages of using a telecentric imaging system in digital holographic microscopy (DHM) to study biological specimens are highlighted. To this end, the performances of nontelecentric DHM and telecentric DHM are evaluated from the quantitative ph

Off-axis digital holographic camera for quantitative phase microscopy.
We propose and experimentally demonstrate a digital holographic camera which can be attached to the camera port of a conventional microscope for obtaining digital holograms in a self-reference configuration, under short coherence illumination and in

Three-dimensional counting of morphologically normal human red blood cells via digital holographic microscopy.
Counting morphologically normal cells in human red blood cells (RBCs) is extremely beneficial in the health care field. We propose a three-dimensional (3-D) classification method of automatically determining the morphologically normal RBCs in the pha

Photothermal excitation setup for a modified commercial atomic force microscope.
High-resolution imaging in liquids using frequency modulation atomic force microscopy is known to suffer from additional peaks in the resonance spectrum that are unrelated to the cantilever resonance. These unwanted peaks are caused by acoustic modes

photodynamic therapy using micelles.
We report a type of photosensitizer (PS)-loaded micelles integrating cyanine dye as potential theranostic micelles for precise anatomical tumor localization via dual photoacoustic (PA)/near-infrared fluorescent (NIRF) imaging modalities, and simultan
