Paper Abstract

Refractive index (RI) and its dispersion play a major role in interaction of electromagnetic wave with matter. Quantitative phase imaging (QPI) has proven to be a useful tool to estimate the RI from the sample-induced phase delay measurement at high spatio-temporal resolution. Here, we introduce near-infrared dispersive quantitative phase imaging (NIRD-QPI) of microscopic objects. The setup uses a new geometry for quantitative phase microscopy by use of spatial frequency filtering in Fourier plane. High resolution refractive index spectroscopic measurement over a range from 690 to 840nm in interval of 25nm is reported. This method could prove to be very useful for characterizing wide range of nano and biomaterials.
