Edge and polarimetric imaging play an essential role in the enhancement of target detection and recognition performance. However, an imaging system with such multiple functionalities tend to be bulky and expensive because of the substantial footprint of their benchtop-based electronic and optical components. Here, we propose a multifunctional 3-in-1 microscope based on an ultrathin metasurface device which can concurrently perform polarimetric, edge and microscope imaging to visualize the multiple facets of transparent biological samples in real-time.
