Preface
PrefaceThis book is intended to give insight into the emerging field of quantitative phase imaging (QPI) as it applies to biomedicine. It is an invitation extended to researchers at various stages in their careers to explore this new and exciting field of study. I devoted par-ticular effort toward providing enough introductory material to make the book self-contained, as much as possible. Thus, the structure of the book progresses from basic to advanced concepts as follows.The motivation and key concepts behind QPI are presented in the Introduction, with particular attention to clarifying ideas such as "nanoscale" and "three-dimensional", which often generate confusion.
