Optical diffraction tomography (ODT) is a three-dimensional (3D) quantitative phase imaging technique, which enables the reconstruction of the 3D refractive index (RI) distribution of a transparent sample. Due to its fast, non-invasive, and quantitative imaging capability, ODT has emerged as a powerful tool for various applications. However, the spatial resolution of ODT has only been quantified along the lateral and axial directions for limited conditions; it has not been investigated for…
