Rapid, high-resolution phase images for live cell imaging
Using multiplexing and an LED array to code illumination angles in a commercial microscope achieves fast capture times, resolution beyond the diffraction limit, and a very large field of view.
Studying the effects of lens aberrations in phase space
Phase-space distributions describe the effect of lens aberrations in real and angular frequency space simultaneously, enabling greater freedom in the design of optical elements.
