Patterned illumination is now a proven technique in optical metrology and imaging, and is widely employed in both industrial and biological applications. However, existing techniques are unable to meet the pressing need for higher imaging rates. To address this challenge, we propose and demonstrate two-dimensional (2D) mechanical-scan-free arbitrary patterned illumination by 2D spectral encoding. The illumination pattern is flexibly generated at high speed by spectral shaping together with… CONTINUE READING
