Abstract

We describe a novel whole-field fluorescence lifetime imaging system, based on a time-gated image intensifier and a solid-state laser oscillator–amplifier, that images lifetime differences of less than 10  ps. This system was successfully applied to discrimination between biological tissue constituents.
