Paper Abstract

We present a new interference pattern based scheme for the cell diagnostics. In this approach the biological cell is illuminated by a spherical light source. The interference pattern that is created by the unscattered incident light and the light that is scattered by a cell is used for cell diagnostics. A three-dimensional computational code (AETHER) for solving the full set of Maxwell’s equations with the Finite-Difference Time-Domain (FDTD) method has been used to numerically determine the interference light intensity pattern between the unscattered incident light and the scattered light. Features of the interference patterns that are obtained for different cellular parameters and structures are discussed. We have numerically shown that the interference intensity pattern can replace the purely scattered light patterns currently used in cell diagnostics.
