We present a novel method to determine the effective elastic constant (EEC) and effective restoring force (ERF) by using volumetric analysis of Red blood cell (RBCs with Full field quantitative phase microscopy (FFQPM. We use the simple harmonic oscillator model to determine EEC and ERF. We investigate the EECs and ERFs of different shape of RBCs (discocyte, acanocyte, stomatocyte, and spherocyte and we investigate the effective temporal coherence of RBCs by analyzing temporal volumetric behavior of the RBCs.
