Spatial light interference microscopy: principle and applications to biomedicine.

Adv Opt Photonics 2021 Jun 5;13(2):353-425. Epub 2021 May 5.

Quantitative Light Imaging Laboratory, Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Beckman Institute for Advanced Science and Technology, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Urbana, Illinois 61801, USA.

In this paper, we review spatial light interference microscopy (SLIM), a common-path, phase-shifting interferometer, built onto a phase-contrast microscope, with white-light illumination. As one of the most sensitive quantitative phase imaging (QPI) methods, SLIM allows for speckle-free phase reconstruction with sub-nanometer path-length stability. We first review image formation in QPI, scattering, and full-field methods. Read More

A pragmatic guide to multiphoton microscope design.

Adv Opt Photonics 2015 Jun;7(2):276-378

Center for Microintegrated Optics for Advanced Biological Control, Department of Physics, Colorado School of Mines, 1500 Illinois Street, Golden, Colorado 80401, USA.

Multiphoton microscopy has emerged as a ubiquitous tool for studying microscopic structure and function across a broad range of disciplines. As such, the intent of this paper is to present a comprehensive resource for the construction and performance evaluation of a multiphoton microscope that will be understandable to the broad range of scientific fields that presently exploit, or wish to begin exploiting, this powerful technology. With this in mind, we have developed a guide to aid in the design of a multiphoton microscope. Read More

Whispering gallery mode sensors.

Adv Opt Photonics 2015 Jun;7(2):168-240

Max Planck Institute for the Science of Light, Laboratory of Nanophotonics and Biosensing, Günther-Scharowsky-Straße 1, 91058 Erlangen, Germany.

We present a comprehensive overview of sensor technology exploiting optical whispering gallery mode (WGM) resonances. After a short introduction we begin by detailing the fundamental principles and theory of WGMs in optical microcavities and the transduction mechanisms frequently employed for sensing purposes. Key recent theoretical contributions to the modeling and analysis of WGM systems are highlighted. Read More

Adv Opt Photonics 2013 ;5(4):456-535

IEEE Intelligent Transportation Systems Society, 11001 Sugarbush Terrace, Rockville, Maryland 20852, USA.

The physical world around us is three-dimensional (3D), yet traditional display devices can show only two-dimensional (2D) flat images that lack depth (i.e., the third dimension) information. Read More
