Abstract

This special Applied Optics issue pays tribute to an extraordinary teacher, scientist, and friend who revolutionized several fields of optics, such as holography, microscopy, and biomedical imaging, by contributing his unique and simplified perspective on complicated phenomena. We thank all the authors who have contributed papers to this special feature as a manifestation of the long and unique career of Emmett Leith.
