Abstract

We present a new microscopy system for imaging in turbid media that is based on the spatial coherence gate principle and generates in parallel a complete two-dimensional head-on image without scanning. This system has been implemented in a commercial microscope and preserves the lateral resolution of the optics used. With a spatially incoherent source, speckle-free images with diffraction-limited resolution are recorded at successive depths with shot-noise-limited detection. The setup comprises a photoelastic modulator for path difference modulation and a two-dimensional CCD array and uses a multiplexed lock-in detection scheme.
