Thesis: Image Formation Models in Lightfield (Plenoptic) Microscopy Using Wave Optics

Thesis by:
Advisor: Tobias Lasser
Supervision by: Anca Stefanoiu

Abstract

Light field microscopy is a scanless techniques for high speed 3D imaging of fluorescent specimens. A conventional microscope can be turned into a light field microscope by placing a microlens array in front of the camera, allowing for a full spatio-angular capture of the light field in a single snapshot. The recorded information can be used to volumetrically reconstruct the imaged sample.

Tasks

The aim of this thesis is to derive the forward light transport model (or point spread function) of the microscope for variations of the setup (e.g. the relative distances of the optical elements, the depth of field, the objective magnification or the aperture) by employing appropriate diffraction approximations. These approximations should be evaluated with respect to their scaling with the setup changes and their limits should be explored.

Requirements

Knowledge in Optics / Diffraction Theory, Matlab
