Paper Abstract

We describe and illustrate a useful optical/electronic imaging technique that employs real-time holography and the phenomenon of optical phase conjugation. The technique is developed as method for coherent light microscopy in which images are produced which show gradients in optical phase retardation. The technique can also be used to produce images which contain only the moving elements of a phase object. We illustrate both applications of the techniques, the first with phase-gradient micrographs of common biological objects, and the second with images of a microscopic subject in which only elements characterized by intrinsic motions appear.
