    Technique Increases Effectiveness of Fluorescence Lifetime Microscopy

    Article obtained from Photonics RSS Feed.

    Researchers from Tokushima University have developed a method of fluorescence lifetime microscopy that does not require mechanical scanning. The technique drastically increases the effectiveness of fluorescence lifetime microscopy (FLIM).

    A major limitation to traditional FLIM methods stems from the fact that fluorescence decay is fast-occurring — most ordinary cameras are unable to capture it. Using a single-point photodetector overcomes the issue, though the device must be scanned over the area of a sample to construct an image with each measured point. The process involves the movement of mechanical pieces, which limits the speed of image capture.

    According to Takeshi Yasui, a professor at the Institute of Post-LED…
