Digital holographic microscopes (DHMs) have been widely applied in material and biological applications. For instance, among many biological and biomedical applications, DHM systems are used for analyzing cells and tissues, as well as disease diagnosis and screening and assessing the polarimetric properties of biomedical samples. In material science, DHM systems have been used to measure MEMS, detect and characterize defects, and quantify surface topography. This research seminar focuses on digital holographic microscopy providing an overview of physical and computational approaches to reconstruct accurate quantitative phase images with minimum distortions. To finalize this talk, we will give some future innovations to develop further the DHM technology and discuss potential applications connecting DHM to Marine Environment research.

Ana Doblas received her BS, Ms.and PhD degrees in Physics from the Universitat de Valencia, Spain, in 2010, 2011 and 2015, respectively. After she finished her PhD work, she joined the Optical Coherence Imaging Laboratory under the supervision of Dr. A. Oldenburg (Department of Physics and Astronomy, University of North Caroline in Chapel Hill, U.S.A.) where she did her 1-year Postdoc. Since 2016, she is at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Memphis (Memphis, Tennessee, U.S.A.). Firstly, as a Research Assistant Professor in the Computational Imaging Research Laboratory (CIRL) and since 2019 as an Assistant Professor and principal investigator of the Optical Imaging Research Laboratory (OIRL). Her current research interests are focused on optical engineering, computational optics and three-dimensional imaging with special interest in the design of novel microscopic imaging systems and their applications. Her final goal is to develop innovative optical imaging methods with some insights in image analysis tools to pursue cutting-edge research, advancing our understanding of unsolved biological questions. Since 2012, she is the author of 37 peer-reviewed scientific journals, her work has been presented at over seventy-five international conferences, and she is co-inventor of four US patents.

The Seminars is open to the public free of charge.
