Real-time quantitative differential interference contrast (DIC) microscopy implemented via novel liquid crystal prisms

Abstract

A phase shifting differential interference contrast (DIC) microscope, which provides quantitative phase information and is capable of imaging at video rates, has been constructed. Using a combination of phase shifting and bi-directional shear, the microscope captures a series of eight images which are then integrated in Fourier space. In the resultant image… (More)
