Abstract

Most commonly used methods for three-dimensional (3D) fluorescence microscopy make use of sectioning techniques that require that the object be physically scanned in a series of two-dimensional (2D) sections along the z axis. The main drawback in these approaches is the need for these sequential 2D scans. An alternative approach to fluorescence imaging in three dimensions has been developed that is based on optical scanning holography. This novel approach requires only a 2D scan to record 3D information. Holograms of 15-µm fluorescent latex beads with longitinal separation of ~2 mm have been recorded and reconstructed. To our knowledge, this is the first time holograms of fluorescent specimens have been recorded by an optical holographic technique.
