Project carried out by Msc. Eng. Arkadiusz Kuś.
Currently, the most common solution in live cell imaging for biology is Zernike phase contrast. This technique converts phase changes to amplitude so that it is possible to observe transparent samples. Usually, the qualitative phase imaging is combined with digital image acquisition. However, by using interference and a holographic microscope setup it is possible to acquire quantitative integrated phase instead of just a qualitative image. What is more, owing to the numerical propagation it is possible to refocus the acquired hologram.
For this reason, the aim of the project is to build a technology demonstrator of a holographic microscope based on an inverted biological microscope in order to transfer this solution to the market.
