Abstract

We developed a novel addressable discrete-line-scanning multiphoton microscope with high lateral and axial resolutions based on a spatial light modulator. Our discrete-line-focus design eliminates the cross talk that occurs in conventional one-dimensional line-scanning multiphoton microscopies. Additionally, a phase-only spatial light modulator is able to scan only a sample’s target area by generating a specific discrete line focus according to the shape and location of the target area. Compared with other multiphoton microscopies, this technique shortens scanning time and minimizes photodamage by concentrating scanning energy and dwell time on the area of interest.
