Digital holographic microscopy is an ideal tool for quantitative phase imaging of cells.
It can provide many cell parameters based on the 3D thickness profile of the cell. It also can be used to extract mechanical parameters of the cell based on the time varying thickness profile. When coupled with classification algorithms, this microscope can be used to identify and classify cells such as blood cells leading to label free disease diagnosis. A compact, portable version of this 3D optical imaging unit has the potential to become a device for compact, field portable biological data collection, analysis, and cell identification leading to disease diagnosis with mobile devices, low cost instruments for deployment in remote areas. The talk will focus on our efforts in the development of digital holographic microscopes as a tool for cell imaging leading to cell identification and label-free disease diagnosis.

This seminar will be held in English.
