Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


In this presentation we discuss a new type of optical microscope that is capable of obtaining spectral and spatial information from biological tissue samples. The current system uses multiplexed volume holograms to probe multiple depths of a tissue sample without the need for scanning. This greatly simplifies the instrument and should allow it to be adapted for laproscopic applications. The technique can be combined with fluorescent dye markers to identify cancerous tissue.
