Ever since the first microscope by Zacharias Janssen in the late 16th century, scientists have been inventing new types of microscopes for various tasks. Inventing a novel architecture demands years, if not decades, worth of scientific experience and creativity. In this work, we introduce Differentiable Microscopy (∂μ), a deep learning-based design paradigm, to aid scientists design new interpretable microscope architectures. Differentiable microscopy first models a common physics-based optical…

Physics-Based Learned Design: Optimized Coded-Illumination for Quantitative Phase Imaging

This paper proposes a new data-driven approach for optimizing coded-illumination patterns for an LED array microscope for a given phase reconstruction algorithm that incorporates both the physics of the measurement scheme and the nonlinearity of the reconstruction algorithm into the design problem.

All-optical machine learning using diffractive deep neural networks

3D-printed D2NNs are created that implement classification of images of handwritten digits and fashion products, as well as the function of an imaging lens at a terahertz spectrum.

The BerHu penalty and the grouped effect

The Huber's criterion is a useful method for robust regression. The adaptive least absolute shrinkage and selection operator (lasso) is a popular technique for simultaneous estimation and variable

Review of bio-optical imaging systems with a high space-bandwidth product

Abstract. Optical imaging has served as a primary method to collect information about biosystems across scales—from functionalities of tissues to morphological structures of cells and even at

Classification and reconstruction of spatially overlapping phase images using diffractive optical networks

The design of diffractive optical networks for the classification and reconstruction of spatially overlapping, phase-encoded objects is reported and a shallow electronic neural network is demonstrated that uses the highly compressed output of the diffractive network as its input to reconstruct both of the phase images, despite their spatial overlap and related phase ambiguity.

High-throughput spatial sensitive quantitative phase microscopy using low spatial and high temporal coherent illumination.

It is demonstrated that use of narrowband partially spatially coherent light source also called pseudo-thermal light source (PTLS) in QPM overcomes the limitations of conventional light sources and will enable wider penetration of QPM in life sciences and clinical applications.

Multi-layer optical Fourier neural network based on the convolution theorem

Considering the need for a high-power light source to excite the nonlinearity of an optical material, how to reduce the power consumption of the system by quantifying the output of each layer after the softmax operation as an 8-bit value and loading these values into amplitude-only spatial light modulators (SLMs).
