Abstract

We first briefly review the state of the art of digital in-line holographic microscopy (DIHM) with numerical reconstruction and then discuss some technical issues, such as lateral and depth resolution, depth of field, twin image, four-dimensional tracking, and reconstruction algorithm. We then present a host of examples from microfluidics and biology of tracking the motion of spheres, algae, and bacteria. Finally, we introduce an underwater version of DIHM that is suitable for in situ studies in an ocean environment that show the motion of various plankton species.
