Image: (a) Interferogram obtained using IPM. Sample is still barely seen. However, the OPD information is encoded into the bend of the interference fringes, as can be seen from the enlarged region of interest in (b). (c) The OPD map of the same sperm cell, as digitally calculated from the interferogram shown in (a). All the main morphological features of the cell are discernable. (c, e) Imaging of a sperm cell with an acrosomal vacuole, using: (d) label-based BFM, and (e) label-free IPM. The vacuole is clearly seen as a defect in the OPD map of the IPM image. BFM = bright-field microscopy; IPM = interferometric phase microscopy; OPD = optical path delay (Photo courtesy of Haifler M, Girshovitz P, et al., 2015, and Elsevier publications).
