Popescu’s Textbook Now Available in Chinese

Dr. Popescu's textbook in English and Chinese versions

Dr. Gabi Popescu, MBM faculty, has released a Chinese-language version of his book, Quantitative Phase Imaging of Cells and Tissues. The textbook explores innovative, cutting-edge imaging techniques and their biomedical applications with full-color images taken by advanced quantitative phase imaging (QPI). The book also illustrates concept development through an introductory background on optical imaging and traditional optical microscopy, and explains how numerical calculations can determine various visualization modalities. Readers will learn how to leverage the vast capabilities of QPI for purposes such as rendering scattering properties of minute subcellular structures and nanoscale fluctuations in live cells.

The textbook covers the following:

  • Groundwork
  • Spatiotemporal field correlations
  • Image characteristics
  • Light microscopy
  • Holography
  • Point scanning QPI methods
  • Principles of full-field QPI
  • Off-axis full-field methods
  • Phase-shifting techniques
  • Common-path methods
  • White light techniques
  • Fourier transform light scattering (FTLS)
  • Current trends in QPI
