Microscopy

View this topic in
Microscopy is the technical field of using microscopes to view samples and objects that cannot be seen with the unaided eye (objects that are not within the resolution range of the normal eye). There are three well-known branches of microscopy, optical, electron, and scanning probe microscopy. (Wikipedia.org)

  • Programmable Microscopy

    Programmable microscopy is a technique where different microscopic imaging methods are realized by changing the illumination or the filtering before the images are captured. To this end, typically spatial light modulators are employed. Examples of imaging methods include Zernike's phase contrast, dark field imaging, differential interference contrast, aberration correction, depth scanning microscopy, and stereo microscopy. By means of the light modulator, the imaging can be adapter to the specimen under test. After recording of multiple images which have been obtained using different imaging methods or parameter settings the individual images are digitally combined by postprocessing.

  • Digital Holographic Microscopy: A New Imaging Technique to Quantitatively Explore Cell Dynamics with Nanometer Sensitivity

    In the first part of this chapter, we describe how the new concept of digital optics applied to the field of holographic microscopy has made it possible to quantitatively and accurately measure the phase retardation induced on the transmitted wavefront by the observed transparent specimen, allowing thus to develop a reliable and flexible digital holographic quantitative phase microscopy (DH-QPM). In the second part the most relevant DH-QPM applications in the field of cell biology are presented. Particularly, applications taking directly advantage of benefits provided by digital optics particularly off-line autofocusing and extended depth of focus, are outlined. Otherwise, special emphasis is placed on how important biophysical cell parameters including absolute cell volume, dry mass, protein content, transmembrane water movements, cell membrane fluctuations etc. can be derived from the quantitative phase signal (QPS) and used to characterize cell dynamics, analyze specific biological mechanisms and discriminate between physiological and pathophysiological states. In the last part, we present how transmembrane water movement measurements can be used to resolve neuronal network activity.

  • Advanced Digital Holographic Microscopy for Life Science Applications

    For the last decade Digital Holographic Microscopy (DHM) demonstrated his huge capabilities in many applications. In particular, it provides the refocusing of objects recorded out of focus and the quantitative phase contrast imaging. We implemented several types of DHM using optical sources of reduced coherence that largely improve the image quality by removing the coherent artifact noise. Different microscope implementations are described up to a color version with LED illumination allowing to record color holograms in snap shot mode. With respect to classical microscopy, DHM provides an enlarged amount of information on the sample under test that can be exploited to implement powerful processing as automated 3D detection and automated holographic classification. The developed automated processes have been applied to life sciences applications, as the water monitoring for environmental analysis and the dynamical behavior of red blood cells.

  • Characterization of Smart Materials

    This chapter presents various characterization procedures for smart materials for microwave and millimeter‐wave sensing. The X‐ray diffraction (XRD), Raman spectroscopy (RS), secondary ion mass spectrometer (SIMS), spectroscopic ellipsometry (SE), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), and Fourier‐transform infrared reflection (FTIR) techniques are used for structural characterization of smart materials. This structural characterization of smart materials is required for material identification, verification, and to understand the definitive structural information in order to develop various smart materials for microwave sensing. The SE, scanning electron microscopy (SEM), and atomic force microscopy (AFM) techniques are used for surface characterization of smart materials. These surface characterizations are used to understand the topographic information in order to develop various smart materials for microwave sensing. The ultraviolet‐visible (UV‐Vis) provides information about the transmittance, reflection, absorption coefficient, band gap, and so on in thin films. The electrical conductivity measurement is used for a dielectric/ semiconductor material for microwave sensing.

  • Resolution of Computational Imaging

    This chapter discusses the resolution of an image that is obtained by solving inverse scattering problems, rather than to provide a comprehensive review of super‐resolution imaging theories and schemes. It explains the resolution of a traditional optical microscopy, which is a kind of instrumental imaging. The chapter introduces computational imaging, where images are generated by numerical reconstruction. Both the inverse source problem and inverse scattering problem are discussed. The chapter describes the Cramer‐Rao bound (CRB), which quantifies a lower bound on the variance of any unbiased estimator. The accuracy of computational imaging is quantified by the CRB. The chapter presents the resolution of image obtained by the Born Approximation (BA) that is applicable to weak scatterers. The analytical tool for the BA‐based imaging provides a deep insight into the resolution of computational imaging. The chapter illustrates the diffraction‐limited resolution, that is, half wavelength as a rule of thumb.

  • Computational Methods in CryoElectron Microscopy 3D Structure Reconstruction

    This chapter addresses the three-dimensional (3D) reconstruction algorithm and its multilevel parallel strategy on GPU platform. It present an adaptive simultaneous algebraic reconstruction technique (ASART) for incomplete data and noisy conditions. Specifically, the authors develop three key techniques- modified multilevel access scheme (MMAS), adaptive adjustment of relaxation (AAR) parameters, and column sum substitution (CSS) technique, to improve the reconstruction quality and speed of the reconstruction process. The chapter reviews iterative 3D reconstruction methods for electron cryotomography (ET). It focuses on the ASART algorithm. The chapter presents a multilevel parallel strategy for iterative reconstruction algorithm. It shows and analyzes the experimental results. In the chapter, the authors present a multilevel parallel strategy for blob-based iterative reconstruction and implement it on the OpenMP-CUDA architecture.

  • Microbiological Image Analysis Using Self-Organization

    This chapter considers the potential and flexibility of self-organizing tree map (SOTM) based and self-organizing hierarchical variance map (SOHVM) based learning for tasks in microbiological image analysis. As a demonstration of the SOHVM's ability to mine topological information from an input space, the chapter describes with an example for how such information can be used to simplify the task of visualizing a large three-dimensional (3D) stack of phase-contrast acquired plant chromosomes imaged during an advanced state of mitosis (cell division). The chapter considers two types of microbiological image data in order to demonstrate the potential for the proposed algorithm to achieve unsupervised, fully automatic segmentations. It shows examples of utilizing this automated property of the SOHVM to seek more natural segmentations of gray-level and higher order, multidimensional feature descriptions, with examples for the clustering of texture information and Local gray-level-based statistics.

  • Introduction

    A point‐of‐care (POC) biomedical instrument is meant to perform the diagnosis at the site of patient care by a clinician or by the patient without the need for clinical laboratory facilities. This chapter discusses three of the most widely‐used traditional biomedical diagnosis instruments, namely the high‐resolution optical microscope, flow cytometer, and DNA sequencer. For bio‐instrument miniaturization towards personalized diagnosis, effective solutions can only be derived from technologies that can resolve the scaling. One proved technology from the semiconductor industry is based on the complimentary metal‐oxide semiconductor (CMOS) process. The chapter highlights the need to develop CMOS‐based Lab‐on‐a‐Chip (LOC) integrated systems that integrate microfluidics, micro‐electro‐mechanical systems (MEMS), and CMOS sensors, as well as smart data analysis for biomedical diagnosis. The introduction presents an overview of the key concepts discussed in the subsequent chapters of this book.
