Abstract

A compact and field-portable three-dimensional (3D)-printed structured illumination (SI) digital holographic microscope based on shearing geometry is presented. By illuminating the sample using a SI pattern, the lateral resolution in both reconstructed phase and amplitude images can be improved up to twice the resolution provided by conventional illumination. The use of a 3D-printed system and shearing geometry reduces the complexity of the system, while providing high temporal stability. The experimental results for the USAF resolution target show a resolution improvement of a factor of two which corroborates the theoretical prediction. Resolution enhancement in phase imaging is also demonstrated by imaging a biological sample. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report of a compact and field-portable SI digital holographic system based on shearing geometry.
