Abstract
Here we report a novel label free, high contrast and quantitative method for imaging live cells. The technique reconstructs an image from overlapping diffraction patterns using a ptychographical algorithm. The algorithm utilises both amplitude and phase data from the sample to report on quantitative changes related to the refractive index (RI) and thickness of the specimen. We report the ability of this technique to generate high contrast images, to visualise neurite elongation in neuronal cells, and to provide measure of cell proliferation.
