We present experimental studies of live cancer cells via microscopic imaging ellipsometry (MIE). The Rotating Compensator Ellipsometry (RCE) is used for our measurements. Ellipsometry spectra with signals integrated over a 20μm×20μm area in visible range (450nm to 750nm) are obtained with the Optrel MULTISKOP system for both specular reflection and off-specular scattering. The microscopic ellipsometry (ME) images at a few fixed wavelengths within the same range were also analyzed. Dielectric constants for glass slide, culture fluid, and glass cover plate were firstly characterized by spectroscopic ellipsometry measurements, which can be used in the simulation for MIE measurements of cancer cells embedded in the culture fluid and sandwiched between a glass slide and cover plate. The measured ME spectra and images of cancer cells before and after medicine injection are measured and analyzed.

Conference Presentations are recordings of oral presentations given at SPIE conferences and published as part of the proceedings. They include the speaker's narration with video of the slides and animations. Most include full-text papers. Interactive, searchable transcripts and closed captioning are now available for most presentations.
