  title={Demystifying speckle field quantitative phase microscopy},
  author={Azeem Ahmad and Nikhil Jayakumar and Balpreet Singh Ahluwalia},
Quantitative phase microscopy (QPM) has found significant applications in the field of biomedical imaging which works on the principle of interferometry. The theory behind achieving interference in QPM with conventional light sources such as white light and lasers is very well developed. Recently, the use of dynamic speckle illumination (DSI) in QPM has attracted attention due to its advantages over conventional light sources such as high spatial phase sensitivity, single shot, scalable field… Expand

Choosing a laser for laser speckle contrast imaging
It is shown that commonly used semiconductor laser diodes have a larger than desired spectral width that results in a significantly reduced speckle contrast compared with ideal narrow band lasers, resulting in a reduced signal-to-noise ratio for estimating changes in the motion of scattering particles.
