The holy grail of biomedical optical imaging is to perform microscopy deep inside living tissue. Unfortunately, biological tissue scatters light, which prevents the formation of a sharp focus. However, recently it was shown that wavefront shaping can be used to focus light through and inside turbid materials. So far, most experiments used liquid crystal devices, which are too slow to match the dynamics of perfused tissue. Since DMD technology is approximately 1000 times faster, it may bring wavefront shaping to in-vivo applications. We will compare analytically the performance of different methods for focusing light through scattering media with an intensity-only light modulator.
