Diffraction phase microscopy: principles and applications in materials and life sciences

Posted on 03/26/14 by admin

PDF Link The main obstacle in retrieving quantitative phase with high sensitivity is posed by the phase noise due to mechanical vibrations and air fluctuations that typically affect any interferometric system. In this paper, we review diffraction phase microscopy (DPM), which is a common-path quantitative phase imaging (QPI) method that significantly alleviates the noise problem. […]

Label-Free Characterization of Emerging Human Neuronal Networks

Posted on 03/24/14 by Taewoo

PDF Link The emergent self-organization of a neuronal network in a developing nervous system is the result of a remarkably orchestrated process involving a multitude of chemical, mechanical and electrical signals. Little is known about the dynamic behavior of a developing network (especially in a human model) primarily due to a lack of practical and […]
