Researchers from King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) have designed a microscope lens that is able to take both quantitative phase images and bright-field images in a single measurement.
Under the supervision of professor Wolfgang Heidrich, the researchers developed a microscope lens that incorporates a wavefront sensor, a custom-designed optical sensor able to encode the wavefront, or phase, information into intensity images.
Quantitative phase images reveal more details than classical microscopy images. The KAUST technique captures both bright-field images (top) and phase images (bottom) in a single measurement. Courtesy of KAUST.
The phase-contrast image is then reconstructed with a computer algorithm…
