Anali Luviano, Physics
(Faculty Mentor: Dr. Arthur Pallone)

The goal of this project was to construct an inexpensive in-line Digital Holographic Microscope (DHM) for use in collaborative research between the physics and biology departments. A DHM can be used to noninvasively examine biological specimens through reconstruction of three-dimensional images of the specimens. For example, commercial DHMs have been used to analyze the physical effects that diseases have on cells such
as neurons and to diagnose certain diseases like malaria. The completed DHM images specimens in red, green and blue colors at video rates.
