Lorenz-Mie analysis of colloidal spheres’ holograms has been reported to achieve remarkable resolution not only for the spheres’ three-dimensional positions, but also for their sizes and refractive indexes. Here we apply numerical modeling to establish limits on the instrumental resolution for tracking and characterizing individual colloidal spheres with Lorenz-Mie microscopy.
