Abstract

We show that light sheet fluorescence microscopy with structured and pivoting illumination enables fast image acquisition and improved image quality. A one-dimensional spatial light phase modulator is used to control the illumination profile at high speed. To demonstrate the features of the system, we image fluorescent beads and biological samples, successfully obtaining optically sectioned images with higher contrast using structured illumination and with reduced shadowing effects using pivoting illumination.
