Microscopy Phase-Stepping Method Interferometry Inverse Problem in Optics
Institute of Information Theories and Applications FOI ITHEA
A method for measurement and visualization of the complex transmission coefficient of 2-D micro-
objects is proposed. The method is based on calculation of the transmission coefficient from the diffraction
pattern and the illumination aperture function for monochromatic light. A phase-stepping method was used for
diffracted light phase determination.
