Concept Info

NAME

Phase-contrast microscopy

DESCRIPTION

Phase contrast microscopy is a white-light optical microscopy technique that relies on sample-induced phase changes in illumination light to generate images with more information than provided by sample-induced intensity changes. Phase information is mixed with intensity information in conventional phase-contrast microscopy, whereas quantitative phase-contrast microscopy displays only the phase information.
