Abstract

A phase imaging based on the transport of intensity equation using multiple bandpass filters is proposed. The proposed method enables us to measure a phase distribution quantitatively from through-focus intensity images obtained by using a white light source and multiple bandpass filters. The technique improves the accuracy of a phase measurement by increasing the number of intensity images obtained at different defocused positions. The feasibility of the phase measurement and the improvement in the accuracy with the increasing the through-focus images are confirmed by numerical simulations and optical experiments.
