Abstract

Hyperspectral imaging in scattering tissue generally suffers from low light collection efficiency. In this Letter, we propose a microscope based on Fourier transform spectroscopy and oblique back-illumination microscopy that provides hyperspectral phase and amplitude images of thick, scattering samples with high throughput. Images can be acquired at >0.1  Hz rates with spectral resolution better than 200  cm1, over a wide spectral range of 450–1700 nm. Proof-of-principle demonstrations are presented with chorioallantoic membrane of a chick embryo, illustrating the possibility of high-resolution hemodynamics imaging in thick tissue, based on transmission contrast.
