Large microscopes are used for specimen analysis, restricting use to the laboratory setting. Diffraction measurements require custom built, experimental setups, which usually need a large amount of space and highly trained personnel to operate.

Researchers at Purdue University have developed a completely portable package capable of performing bright-field imaging and diffraction-based measurements on samples. This device includes all optics, electronics, on-board computer, touch-screen, and wireless interface. Measurements and data analysis can easily occur outside of laboratories because the on-board computer is capable of performing a wide variety of analysis on captured images.

Advantages:
-Portable
-Perform a wide variety of analysis and measurements

Potential Applications:
-Medical/Health
-Medical testing
-Research
