Abstract

We demonstrate a new design for a light-scattering microscope that is convenient to use and that allows simultaneous imaging and light scattering. The design is motivated by the growing use of thermal fluctuations to probe the viscoelastic properties of complex inhomogeneous environments. We demonstrate measurements of an optically nonergodic sample, one of the most challenging light-scattering applications.
