This work presents a compact low-cost and straightforward shadow imaging microscopy technique based on spatially resolved nano-illumination instead of spatially resolved detection. Independently addressable nano-LEDs on a regular 2D array provide the resolution of the microscope by illuminating the sample in contact with the LED array and creating a shadow image in a photodetector located on the opposite side. The microscope prototype presented here is composed by a GaN chip with an 8x8 array of 5μm-LEDs with 10 μm pitch light sources and a commercial CMOS image sensor with integrated lens used as a light collector. We describe the microscope prototype and analyze the effect of the sensing area size on image reconstruction.
