Deconvolution phase microscopy enables high-contrast visualization of transparent samples through reconstructions of their transmitted phases or refractive indexes. Herein, we propose a method to extend 2D deconvolution phase microscopy to thick 3D samples. The refractive index distribution of a sample can be obtained at a specific axial plane by measuring only four intensity images obtained under optimized illumination patterns. Also, the optical phase delay of a sample can be measured using different illumination patterns.
