Workshop on Interferometric Scattering Microscopy

Label-free optical imaging and analytical techniques are in high demand in a wide range of applications. Among the various light-matter interactions that can be used for this purpose, elastic scattering is the most fundamental and ubiquitous contrast mechanism. Indeed, several imaging modalities, including bright-field microscopy, dark-field microscopy, phase contrast, DIC, digital holography, interference reflection microscopy, and interferometric scattering microscopy (iSCAT) have exploited the elastic scattering signal from a wide range of samples. 


We organized an online-workshop from the 26th to the 28th of May 2020 to discuss the recent progress and future potentials of elastic scattering with a particular emphasis on interferometric and phase-sensitive methods.
