Abstract

A phase microscopy method based on the use of a refractive glass pyramid to determine the wavefront generated by a transparent microscopic sample is presented. The method uses the incoherent illumination of the sample to statically extend the sensor dynamic range. A description, experimental demonstration, and preliminary results are presented.
