A camera system suitable for microholography has been constructed, tested, and applied to the imaging of biological materials. The design of this instrument is compatible with operation over a very wide spectral range spanning from visible to x-ray wavelengths. In order to evaluate its properties, visible light Fourier transform microholograms of biological samples and other test targets have been recorded and digitally reconstructed using a glycerol microdrop as a reference wave scatterer…

On-chip differential interference contrast microscopy using lensless digital holography
Using an incoherent source with a large aperture, in-line holograms of micro-objects are created, which interact with a uniaxial crystal and an absorbing polarizer, encoding differential interference contrast information of the objects on the chip.
Physical phase compensation in digital holographic microscopy
In digital holographic microscopy (DHM), using microscope objective for sample imaging may introduce additional spherical phase curvature. It can be physically compensated by introducing a same phase
Lensfree on-chip microscopy over a wide field-of-view using pixel super-resolution
A sub-pixel shifting based super-resolution algorithm is implemented to effectively recover much higher resolution digital holograms of the objects, permitting sub-micron spatial resolution to be achieved across the entire sensor chip active area.
