Abstract

Quantitative phase microscopy offers a range of benefits over conventional phase-contrast techniques. For example, changes in refractive index and specimen thickness can be extrapolated and images can be refocused subsequent to their recording. In this Letter, we detail a lensless, quantitative phase microscope with a wide field of view and a useful resolution. The microscope uses the recently reported coherent diffractive imaging technique of ptychography to generate images from recorded diffraction patterns.
