Abstract

We describe a method for <i>en face</i> phase-contrast imaging of cells with a fiber-based differential phase-contrast optical coherence microscopy system. Recorded <i>en face</i> images are quantitative phase-contrast maps of cells due to spatial variation of the refractive index and (or) thickness of various cellular components. Quantitative phase-contrast images of human epithelial cheek cells obtained with the fiber-based differential phase-contrast optical coherence microscopy system are presented.
