Abstract

We present a method for phase retrieval in off-axis interferometric systems. By numerically calculating the transverse 1st and 2nd order derivatives of the interferogram, we show that one can directly retrieve the quantitative phase image, without the need for Fourier or Hilbert transformations. Because of this, the method is significantly faster than the current approaches. We illustrate our method using biological specimen data from three different off-axis quantitative phase imaging techniques.
