Abstract

In-line holographic optical imaging has the unique capability of high speed imaging in three dimensions at rates limited only by the imaging rate of the camera used. In this technique the 3D data is recorded on the detector in a form of a hologram generated by diffraction between the scattered and unscattered light passing through the sample. For dilute samples of single particles or a small cluster of particles, this technique was shown to result in particle tracking with spatial positioning accuracy of a few nanometers. For dense suspension only approximate reconstruction were achieved with systematic axial positioning errors. We propose a scheme to extend accurate holographic microscopy to dense suspensions, by calibrating the Rayleigh-Sommerfeld reconstruction algorithm against Lorentz-Mie scattering theory. We perform this calibration both numerically and experimentally and define the parameter space in which accurate imaging is achieved, and in which numerical calibration holds. We demonstrate the validity of our approach by imaging two attached particles and measuring the distance between their centers with 36 nm accuracy. A difference of 50 nm in particle diameter is easily measured.

1. Introduction

Fast three dimensional imaging of dense microscopic colloidal suspensions is greatly desired for many applications, such as 3D fluid velocity field characterization, microrheology of complex media, and characterization of active motion in live cells. The most common microscopy technique used for three dimensional imaging is confocal microscopy, in which fluorescently labeled tracer particles are followed and tracked. The rate of imaging of the full field of view is determined by the camera capture rate, the fluorescence efficiency, and the number of planes imaged in the axial direction. In-line digital holographic microscopy is an imaging technique offering three dimensional imaging of unlabeled particle suspensions at a single camera exposure, capable of reaching kHz imaging rates in 3D [1

]. However, accurate rendering of particle location within the sample, done in the framework of the Lorentz-Mie scattering theory, is restricted to very dilute samples having non-ovelapping diffraction patterns. Here we demonstrate how to extend accurate in-line holographic 3D positioning to denser suspensions.

Digital holographic microscopy (DHM) is a 3D imaging technique based on recording the interference pattern between a reference beam and a beam diffracted by a sample. This interference pattern constitutes a hologram that encodes the three dimensional image of the sample. In-line digital holography is a variant of the technique that uses the light that does not scatter by the sample as a reference beam. Since the reference beam and the scattered beam travel through exactly the same optical path except for diffracting from an imaged particle, the method is less sensitive to variations in refractive index,thickness, and composition. The implementation of in-line holographic microscopy involves replacing the bright field illumination of an optical microscope by collimated laser light. Two different approaches can be used to extract 3D particle positions from the obtained holograms, one based on reconstructing the hologram digitally, using Fresnel or Rayleigh-Sommerfeld diffraction integrals [2

]. The normalized intensity on a plane perpendicular to the optical axis in such a hologram, is a function of the sphere’s 3D position, size, refractive index and the refractive index of its environment [6

]. When determining the laser’s wavelength and the effective magnification, this fitting process yields a precise measure to the sphere’s parameters and reveals more information than do hologram reconstruction algorithms. Once the 3D position of the particle is determined standard tracking algorithms [9

] can be applied to characterize its motion. The main caveat of this fitting method is its sensitivity to imaging noise, overlapping diffraction patterns prevent its convergence. As a result, accurate extraction of the three dimensional positions of particles is limited to very dilute suspension.

We propose a calibration scheme to correct for these axial positioning errors in order to achieve accurate 3D position rendering of dense colloidal suspensions within the Rayleigh-Sommerfeld reconstruction framework.In this study we identify the main sources of the systematic errors in the Rayleigh-Sommerfeld reconstruction algorithm and correct for them by calibrating the Rayleigh-Sommerfeld scheme against the Lorentz-Mie approach on simulated data, and on experimental data. As a result we achieve improved accuracy of 3D particle positioning using Rayleigh-Sommerfeld reconstruction. We proceed to demonstrate two scenarios in which the calibrated Rayleigh-Sommerfeld reconstruction produces better 3D particle positioning than the Lorentz-Mie approach; particles near a partially reflective wall, and two attached particles with overlapping diffraction patterns.

3. Calibrating Rayleigh-Sommerfeld reconstruction

3.1. Numerical calibration

We consider now the incident plane-wave and the scattered light from a spherical particle, E⃗0 and E⃗s, as defined in Eq. (1). We describe the scattered field at position r⃗ in the focal plane due to an object at r⃗p, relative to the center of the focal plane, as [6

]:
Es(r,0)=E0(rp)fs(k(rrp))
(7)
where f⃗s(k(r⃗r⃗p)) is the field scattered from our particle, and given by [6

]:

according to Lorentz-Mie scattering theory. Mo1n(1) and Ne1n(1) are vector spherical harmonic functions of the first kind, their coefficients depending on the sphere’s position, radius (ap), refractive index (np) and the refractive index of its environment (nm) [6

]. With these definitions, the normalized hologram can be written as:
B(r)I(r)I0(r)1+2Re{fs(k(rrp))ε^0}+|fs(k(rrp))|2
(9)
Here we can use the full functional form of the scattered field. The Lorentz-Mie reconstruction protocol amounts, in practice, to fitting the experimentally obtained hologram to this analytical two dimensional function. Alternatively, the Lorentz-Mie theory can be used to simulate in-line holograms of a colloidal particle of given size, refractive index, and position, in a medium of choice.

In order to calibrate the Rayleigh-Sommerfeld scheme for hologram reconstruction, we first simulated theoretical calibration graphs by computing digital holograms of spheres using Lorentz-Mie theory as described above, and calculating the axial shift, ΔzLMRS, between the height of the particle according to Rayleigh-Sommerfeld reconstruction ZRS, and Lorentz-Mie fitting ZLM, with different values of particle size and height above the focal plane. Since Lorentz-Mie fitting recovers exactly the input position of the particles, Rayleigh-Sommerfeld reconstruction of the simulated holograms reveals the effective focal length of the particle, ΔzLMRS = zLMzRS[10

10. Y.-S. Choi and S.-J. Lee, “High-accuracy three-dimensional position measurement of tens of micrometers size transparent microspheres using digital in-line holographic microscopy,” Opt. Lett. 36, 4167–4169 (2011) [CrossRef] [PubMed] .

]. Figure 1 shows the measured ΔzLMRS value from computer-generated holograms of polystyrene spheres in TE buffer. The result indicates clearly that zRS depends not only on the particle’s size, but also on its height above the focal plane. It has already been proven [8

8. F. C. Cheong and D. G. Grier, “Rotational and translational diffusion of copper oxide nanorods measured with holographic video microscopy,” Opt. Express 18, 6555–6562 (2010) [CrossRef] [PubMed] .

] that minor deviations exist in the value of ΔzLMRS when a diffusing particle changes its height above the focal plane. Figure 1(a), however, proves these deviations are minor only when small particles (ap ∼ 0.5 μm) are taken into account and cannot be ignored for larger particles. The reason for the increased error in axial position of particle location obtained by Rayleigh-Sommerfeld reconstruction can be explained by a simple argument. The diffraction from each particle results in a pattern of rings with different locations and intensities, the most accurate reconstruction would use all diffraction rings. However, practical consideration limit the number of diffraction rings used for reconstruction, such as experimental optical noise obscuring the weaker rings, or the limited field of view chosen around the particle center for reconstruction. As a result, if too few diffraction rings are used a systematic error in location is created. From our simulations we can asses at which condition this systematic error can be avoided, and at which conditions a linear correction can be applied to correctly asses relative motion in the axial direction. It is important to state that the Lorentz-Mie fitting approach is more robust, since it can converge even when a smaller number of diffraction rings are fitted. To determine a range within which Rayleigh-Sommerfeld reconstruction is accurate at an experimentally available field-of-view we calculated ΔzLMRS as a function of window size for different particle heights (see Fig. 1(b)). From Fig. 1 we learn that window size should be over 30 μm to reach a linear shift for particles between ap ∼ 0.5 – 1 μm, which we used for our experimental data reconstruction. For small particles (ap ∼ 0.5 μm), in standard imaging conditions, axial position obtained by Rayleigh-Sommerfeld reconstruction is insensitive to the distance from the microscope’s focal length, at window sizes greater than 20 μm. Moreover, the accurate axial position of such a bead is about 0.8 μm above the bright feature in the rendered three dimensional image. In this way, we can produce height calibration curves for any given particle with known composition and size.

Calibration graph of polystyrene sphere’s effective focal length Δz = zLMzRS in TE buffer, (a) as a function of the sphere’s size, and (b) as a function of field 0 of-view size. The focal length varies across the sphere’s height and is more significant for larger particles due to the decrease in the number of diffration ring in the field-of-view.

3.2. Experimental calibration

To test our calibration method we assembled an in-line holographic imaging microscope equipped with holographic optical tweezers (HOTs) [14

14. S.-H. Lee and D. G. Grier, “Holographic microscopy of holographically trapped three-dimensional structures,” Opt. Express 15, 1505–1512 (2007) [CrossRef] [PubMed] .

]. Figure 2 shows a schematic representation of the integrated system, which is based on an inverted optical microscope (Olympus IX71) working at a magnification of 100x with an oil immersion objective lens (NA = 1.4). This lens is used both to project holographic optical traps, and also to collect in-line holographic images of trapped objects. Holographic traps are powered by a CW Ti:Shapire laser (Coherent) operating at a wavelength of 750 nm. The collimated laser light is imprinted with a phase pattern by a liquid crystal spatial light modulator (SLM, Hamamatsu X-10468-07) encoding optical trap location in the sample plane. Holographic imaging is achieved by illuminating the sample with laser light at 532 nm (DPSS, Coherent) and filtering out the trapping laser light. A CMOS camera (Gazelle, Point Grey Research) records the holographic images at a rate of 70 fps. Polystyrene colloids, ap = 1.025 μm, were trapped at three different heights and allowed to diffuse within the trap. Trap height was measured in three techniques: by volumetric imaging of the light on a reflecting mirror [15

15. Y. Roichman, I. Cholis, and D. G. Grier, “Volumetric imaging of holographic optical traps,” Opt. Express 14, 10907–10912 (2006) [CrossRef] [PubMed] .

], by Rayleigh-Sommerfeld reconstruction, and by fitting to Lorentz-Mie theory. Figure 3(a) shows the trajectory of the particle according to Lorentz-Mie fitting (blue dots), the average height according to Lorentz-Mie fitting (black line), zLM, the average height according to Rayleigh-Sommerfeld reconstruction (red line, no calibration, no deconvolution), zRS, and the height according to the volumetric imaging of the beam (green line), zmirror. The shift between the axial position of the trap according to Lorentz-Mie fitting and volumetric imaging, changes with depth, and depends on the error in the assessment of the objective’s focal length by volumetric imaging and on spherical abberations due to refractive index mismatch between the glass slide and TE buffer. The shift between zLM, and zRS is indeed not constant even for a displacement of 0.3 μm, however, zLM, and zRS are linearly dependent in this range (see Fig. 3(b)). The distribution of zLMRS − < zLMRS > shown in Fig. 3(c) indicates that without calibration and deconvolution Rayleigh-Sommerfeld reconstruction has an axial positioning accuracy of about 55 nm. In order to use numerically obtained calibration data, we wish to determine the parameter range in which it coincides with experiment. Specifically, for known particle size and sample composition we would like to compare the linear relation between zLM, and zRS (as measured in Fig. 3(b)), to an equivalent, numerically obtained, curve. To this end we performed a set of experiments tracking the diffusion of colloidal particles, creating calibration curves for them at two different heights and comparing them to numerically reconstructed calibration curves (Fig. 4). Theory and experiment agree well (Fig. 4(a)) at conditions in which simulations showed no dependence on window size, as the number of diffraction rings in the field-of-view decreases, a shift between simulation and experiment is observed (Fig. 4(b)). This shift remains constant for a range of at least 4 μm. In this range, therefore, numerical calibration curves suffice for determining the motion on the axial direction. Below we describe two experiment to which we applied our numerical calibration scheme.

A collimated laser beam (532nm) is expanded to overfill the field of view of a 100x objective lens of an Olympus IX71 microscope instead of its convention bright field illumination. A second laser beam (750nm) is expanded to overfill the face of a special light modulator (SLM) and relayed to the back focal plane of the same objective lens. The light pattern imprinted on the beam by the SLM focuses in the sample plane to form optical traps.

4. Application to experiments

4.1. A particle diffusing near a wall

A single silica bead, suspended in an aqueous solution sediments to the sample cell floor due to gravity. It is repelled from the floor due to screened Coulomb interactions enhanced by plasma etching of the sample chamber. The height distribution of the sphere should be dominated at low heights by a sharp repulsion from the wall and decay exponentially as mgh/kBT far from the wall [16

were Δρ is the difference between the density of silica and water, g is gravitational acceleration, Q is the effective charge on a charged particle, and κ is the Debye screening length. We followed the diffusion of such a silica bead (ap = 0.75 ± 0.04 μm, Polysciences Inc.) as it floats above the glass floor Fig. 5. The trajectory of the particle was extracted using both reconstruction algorithms, applying the numerical calibration protocol to data from Rayleigh-Sommerfeld reconstruction (Fig. 5(a)). Having a glass wall near the diffusing particle distorts the diffraction pattern to some extent preventing the Lorent-Mie algorithms from correct convergence occasionally (see deviating green dots on Fig. 5(a)). While there is a small shift observed between the axial position according to both algorithms the height distributions coincide, well fitted by theoretical prediction (Fig. 5(b)), with T ≈ 28°C, κ ≈ 60nm, and Q = q(κap)/(1 +κap) with q ≈ 6500. For such application, where relative axial position is of interest, and boundary conditions distort the diffraction pattern, the calibrated Rayleigh-Sommerfeld reconstruction provides better reconstruction than the more elaborated Lorentz-Mie algorithm. This can be seen in two ways, the precision of particle positioning, which is extracted from the intercept of the mean square displacement plot [12

] is comprable for both algorithms (εxy,RS = εxy,LM ∼ 1nm, εz,RS ∼ 2.5nm < εz,LM ∼ 3.5nm), and the Lorent-Mie algorithm results in locations below the glass wall, ocationally (see low green dots, Fig. 5(a)). Our goal however, is to use calibrated Rayleigh-Sommerfeld reconstruction to measure accurately axial positions of dense suspensions. To this end we must be able to measure the distance between two attached beads.

(b) The height probability distribution of the sphere extracted by both methods and shifted so that the maximal values coincide, and confirm theoretical prediction.

4.2. Two diffusing spheres

The main purpose of this study was to devise a method in which particle tracking in dense suspensions including aggregated particles could be done in 3D by in-line holographic imaging, with reliable and accurate positioning. The most challenging problem is to extract accurate location and distances between two attached particles of different size with highly overlapping diffraction patterns. To this end we created dilute suspension of colloidal particle pairs with different sizes, one with DNA coating and the other without. Our protocol involved mixing two suspensions, DIG-labeled 2 μm diameter (Spherotech) and NeutrAvidin-labeled 1 μm diameter (Invitrogen) Polystyrene spheres. Prior to mixing each suspension was diluted and washed three times by resuspension in TE buffer, centrifugation, and removal of the supernatant. The first set of experiments was performed after the two suspension were mixed and allowed to form aggregates. For the second set of experiments each suspension was incubated with λ-DNA (In-vitrogrn) after washing and prior to mixing. In all experiments the resulting dilute suspension consisted of aggregates of colloidal particles from both sizes, we chose six particle pairs of each batch and imaged them holographically while diffusing in three dimensions. Using deconvolution Rayleigh-Sommerfeld reconstruction we measured the center-to-center distance between particle pairs and averaged over all measured pairs. In Fig. 6 the probability distribution of this distance during acquisition is plotted before and after the use of our numerical calibration scheme. In the absence of DNA we expect the inter-particle distance to be d = 1.5 μm. Raw data show a wide distribution of distances due to the large difference in the effective focal length of the large and small particles, and due to its different dependence on height. However, after calibration the distribution collapses to a thin gaussian distribution centered around the expected value, d = 1.505 ± 0.038 μm. Suspension prepared with DNA show similar results, however a layer of approximately 100 nm is now coating each sphere.

5. Conclusion

The flexible algorithm of hologram reconstruction based on Rayleigh-Sommerfeld back propagation can be transformed into an accurate measuring technique by use of the numerical calibration we introduced here. Our approach results in axial localization accuracy of the order of 40 – 60 nm. As a result we were able to perform accurate three dimensional imaging at conditions which are challenging for the more accurate Lorentz-Mie algorithm, such as particles at the vicinity of scattering boundaries and for two attached particles with strongly overlapping diffraction patterns. Our calibration scheme opens new possible applications for in-line holographic imaging which will benefit from its capability for fast three dimensional imaging. For example, characterization of complex flow patterns in three dimensions, especially in microfluidic setups in which the scattering effect of the walls can be significant.
