Research Institution

This Phase II effort prototypes a minimal volume microscope designed to allow for a 2-D digital holographic imaging concurrent with field of view spectral content at video frame rates. The use of a laser driven IR dual beam frequency comb, coincident with the optical beam path required for a digital holographic image, will allow rapid acquisition of both the spatial and the spectral content associated with cellular activity. This spatial/spectral content will then be used to develop a deep learning driven library of spectral signatures for the rapid, label free identification and characterization of pathogens for use in remote nanoscopic applications.
