Molecular Imaging Hack Makes Cameras "Faster"

Posted December 23, 2016 12:00 AM by Engineering360 eNewsletter

Super temporal resolution microscopy (STReM), which uses a rotating phase mask to encode fast dynamics in each camera frame, allows scientists to view and gather useful information about fluorescing molecules at a frame rate 20x faster than typical lab cameras allow.

Thanks Rixter. Your link definitely helps, although the diagram isn't fully clear to me. I think I see a green arrow pointing upward through the dichroic. I presume that indicates a light source that initiates the fluorescence in the plane at top left. Since the light of fluorescence has a different energy/frequency/color, it reflects off the dichroic mirror and passes through all the rest of the optics to reach the film/sensor on the right. Does that agree with your interpretation?

I agree, the green arrow looks like the laser light that initiates the fluorescence.
