    Spectral-domain optical coherence phase microscopy for quantitative biological studies (Thesis)
    Conventional phase-contrast and differential interference contrast microscopy produce high contrast images of transparent specimens such as cells. However, they do not provide quantitative information or do not have enough sensitivity to detect nanometerlevel structural alterations. We have developed spectral-domain optical coherence phase microscopy (SD-OCPM) for highly sensitive quantitative phase imaging in 3D. This technique employs common-path spectral-domain optical coherence reflectometry to produce depth-resolved reflectance and quantitative phase images with high phase stability. The phase sensitivity of SD-OCPM was measured as nanometer-level for cellular specimens, demonstrating the capability for detecting small structural variation within the specimens. We applied SD-OCPM to the ...
