Quantitative Phase Imaging of Cells and Tissues

by: Gabriel Popescu


Abstract: Filled with unique, full-color cellular images taken by advanced quantitative phase imaging (QPI), this book thoroughly explores this innovative technology and its biomedical applications. An introductory background on optical imaging and traditional optical microscopy is included to illustrate concept development. The book explains how various visualization modalities can be obtained by numerical calculations. This authoritative resource reveals how to take full advantage of the unprecedented capabilities of QPI, such as rendering scattering properties of minute subcellular structures and nanoscale fluctuations in live cells.
