Multidirectional selective plane illumination microscopy (mSPIM) reduces absorption and scattering artifacts and provides an evenly illuminated focal plane. mSPIM solves two common problems in light-sheet-based imaging techniques: The shadowing in the excitation path due to absorption in the specimen is eliminated by pivoting the light sheet; the spread of the light sheet by scattering in the sample is compensated by illuminating the sample consecutively from opposing directions. The resulting…

Flexible Multi-Beam Light-Sheet Fluorescence Microscope for Live Imaging Without Striping Artifacts

TLDR
The advantages provided by flexible and fast AODs in generating simultaneous angled multiple beams from a single laser beam and in fast light sheet pivoting are reported and the suppression of illumination artifacts are demonstrated.

Multidirectional digital scanned light-sheet microscopy enables uniform fluorescence excitation and contrast-enhanced imaging

TLDR

Fast multi-directional DSLM for confocal detection without striping artifacts

TLDR
This work presents an optical solution to this problem, via fast multi-directional illumination of the sample, based on an acousto-optical deflector (AOD), and demonstrates that this pivoting system is compatible with confocal detection in digital scanned laser light-sheet fluorescence microscopy (DSLM) by using a pivoted elliptical-Gaussian beam.
