Abstract

Dynamic speckle illumination (DSI) provides a simple and robust technique to obtain fluorescence depth sectioning with a widefield microscope. We report a significant improvement to DSI microscopy based on a statistical image-processing algorithm that incorporates spatial wavelet prefiltering. The resultant gain in sectioning strength leads to a fundamentally improved scaling law for the out-of-focus background rejection.
