Laura Waller gives an overview of new optical microscopes that employ simple experimental systems and efficient nonlinear inverse algorithms to achieve high-resolution 3D and phase images. By leveraging recent advances in data science, these microscopes can produce gigapixel-scale images at each time frame, computed efficiently and with good robustness to noise and model mismatch.
