The spatial-spectral holographic imaging system (S2-VHIS) is a promising alternative to confocal microscopy due to its capabilities to simultaneously image several sample depths with high resolution. However, the field of view of previously presented S2-VHIS prototypes has been restricted to less than 200 μm. We present experimental results of an improved S2-VHIS design that has a field of view of ∼1 mm while maintaining high resolution and dynamic range.
