Abstract

We recently developed a time-resolved multispectral laser-induced fluorescence (LIF) imaging system capable of tunable wavelengths in the visible region for sample excitation and nanosecond-scale characterizations of fluorescence responses (lifetime imaging). Time-dependent fluorescence decay characteristics and fluorescence lifetime imaging of apples artificially contaminated with a range of diluted cow feces were investigated at 670 and 685nm emission bands obtained by 418, 530, and 630nm excitations. The results demonstrated that a 670nm emission with a 418nm excitation provided the greatest difference in time-dependent fluorescence responses between the apples and feces-treated spots. The versatilities of the time-resolved LIF imaging system, including fluorescence lifetime imaging of a relatively large biological object in a multispectral excitation-emission wavelength domain, were demonstrated.
