To obtain microscope images at multiple focal planes, the distance between the objective and sample can be mechanically adjusted. Images are acquired sequentially at each axial distance. Digital refocusing with a light-emitting diode (LED) array microscope allows elimination of this mechanical movement. In an LED array microscope, the light source of a conventional widefield microscope is replaced with a 2-dimensional LED matrix. A stack of images is acquired from the LED array microscope by…

Multiplexed coded illumination for Fourier Ptychography with an LED array microscope.
A multiplexed illumination strategy in which multiple randomly selected LEDs are turned on for each image so that the total number of images can be significantly reduced, without sacrificing image quality.
Illumination pattern design with deep learning for single-shot Fourier ptychographic microscopy.
This work uses deep learning to achieve single-shot imaging without sacrificing the space-bandwidth product, reducing the acquisition time in Fourier ptychographic microscopy by a factor of 69.
Computational multifocal microscopy
A unifying computational framework is proposed which simplifies the imaging system and achieves 3D reconstruction via computation and a 3D video of moving bacteria recorded at 25 frames per second is demonstrated using the proposed computational multifocal microscopy technique.
Microscopy refocusing and dark-field imaging by using a simple LED array.
It is shown that such a condenser can be replaced by a programmable LED array to achieve greater imaging flexibility and functionality and can be used for dark-field imaging, bright- field imaging, microscopy sectioning, and digital refocusing.
Data-Driven Design for Fourier Ptychographic Microscopy
This work recasts the super-resolution reconstruction as a Physics-based Neural Network and learns the experimental design to optimize the network’s overall performance, and learns LED source pattern designs that compress the many required measurements into only a few, with negligible loss in reconstruction quality or resolution.
Wide-field, high-resolution Fourier ptychographic microscopy
An imaging method, termed Fourier ptychographic microscopy (FPM), which iteratively stitches together a number of variably illuminated, low-resolution intensity images in Fourier space to produce a wide-field, high-resolution complex sample image, which can also correct for aberrations and digitally extend a microscope's depth-of-focus beyond the physical limitations of its optics.
3D differential phase-contrast microscopy with computational illumination using an LED array.
3D differential phase-contrast microscopy is demonstrated, based on computational illumination with a programmable LED array, which achieves 3D DPC with simple, inexpensive optics and no moving parts.
Optimal physical preprocessing for example-based super-resolution.
Deep learning is used to jointly optimize a single illumination pattern and the parameters of a post-processing reconstruction algorithm for a given sample type, establishing the importance of physical preprocessing in example-based super-resolution.
