Abstract
We present a combined optical system for Brillouin microscopy with optical diffraction tomography (ODT), which can reconstruct the three-dimensional refractive index (RI) distribution of biological samples. By correlating Brillouin frequency shift with the reconstructed RI distribution in the same field-of-view, we can calculate the precise longitudinal modulus of the samples without a priori information. We demonstrate the capabilities of the method using a cell phantom consisting of different hydrogel beads with known mechanical properties, and apply it to the quantitative characterization of the mechanical and biophysical properties of nuclear compartments inside individual cells under various physiological conditions including cell cycle progression and drug treatments.
