Optimizing field-of-view of deep-tissue scanning microscopy

Conference Dates

July 23-26, 2017


For centuries, the optical microscope has been a crucial instrument for new biological findings, as microscopes were the first devices allowing to observe the internal processes of the cell. Unfortunately, this observation requires the use of thin samples, as biological tissue scatters the incoming light, resulting in a blurred image. An ever increasing number of deep-tissue imaging technique have pushed the penetration depth of the optical microscope. Methods such as adaptive optics [1] allow focusing inside biological tissue by correcting for scattering introduced by the sample. However, adaptive optics methods can only correct for image distortions caused by scattering over a single small area (i.e., field-of-view) within tissue.
