Abstract
The refractive index (RI) of the retina and its dispersion are essential parameters in ophthalmologic imaging. However, the spatial RI distribution in retinal tissue is difficult to access. We explored the capabilities of multispectral quantitative phase imaging (QPI) with digital holographic microscopy (DHM) for label-free refractive index characterization of dissected murine retina. The retrieved tissue refractive indices are in agreement with previously reported values for living cells and dissected tissues. Moreover, the detected spatial refractive index distributions correlate with results from complementary conducted OCT investigations. In summary, multispectral DHM is a promising tool for label-free characterization of optical retina properties.
