Real-time high-throughput identification, screening, characterisation, and processing of reflective and transparent phase objects like micro and nanostructures as well as biological specimen is of significant interest to a variety of applications from cell biology, medicine and even to lithography. In this chapter, new as well as conventional possibilities that arise from digital holographic microscopy (DHM) and holographic optical tweezers (HOTs) are demonstrated and discussed on experimental setups and corresponding findings. This comprises subsequent digital holographic focusing, DHM with partially coherent light sources such as superluminescence diodes (SLDs) and LEDs, the tayloring of the coherence length of these broadband light sources as well as the simulation and the design of HOT setups. Furthermore, the characterisation of spatial light modulators and of an overall system is treated including the determination of the optical force and trapping stability.
