Brightfield, darkfield, and phase contrast are the most common label-free contrast modes used in optical microscopy.1 Brightfield imaging is most suitable for observing samples with strong absorption. Darkfield imaging provides good contrast for subresolution features, since it only captures high-angle scattered light. Phase contrast is used for unstained and transparent biological samples, allowing visualization of shape and density variations. There are several commercial choices for phase contrast [e.g., Zernike phase contrast or differential interference contrast (DIC)2] and new methods which provide quantitative phase.3–6 Since each of brightfield, darkfield, and phase imaging provides complementary information about a sample, it is often desired to use multiple methods at once. However, in a traditional microscope, each contrast mode relies on a different optical hardware configuration, requiring inserts at the condenser aperture, polarization components, and/or specialized objectives. Here, we demonstrate a system which can achieve all three modes simultaneously by placing an LED array at the source plane and implementing simple postprocessing steps.
