Abstract

Pupil filters, represented by binary phase modulation, have been applied to extend the field of view of a light-sheet fluorescence microscope. Optimization has been used, first numerically to calculate the optimum filter structure and then experimentally, to scale and align the numerically synthesized filter in the microscope. A significant practical extension of the field of view has been observed, making the reported approach a valuable tool on the path to wide-field light-sheet microscopy.
