Abstract
We explored photothermal quantitative phase imaging (PTQPI) of living cells with functionalized nanoparticles (NPs) utilizing a cost-efficient setup based on a cell culture microscope. The excitation light was modulated by a mechanical chopper wheel with low frequencies. Quantitative phase imaging (QPI) was performed with Michelson interferometer-based off-axis digital holographic microscopy and a standard industrial camera. We present results from PTQPI observations on breast cancer cells that were incubated with functionalized gold NPs binding to the epidermal growth factor receptor. Moreover, QPI was used to quantify the impact of the NPs and the low frequency light excitation on cell morphology and viability.
