Abstract

Structured illumination microscopy (SIM) is a wide-field technique that rivals confocal microscopy in optical sectioning ability at a small fraction of the acquisition time. For standard detectors such as a CCD camera, SIM requires a minimum of three sequential frame captures, limiting its usefulness to static objects. By using a color grid and camera, we surpass this limit and achieve optical sectioning with just a single image acquisition. The extended method is now applicable to moving objects and improves the speed of three-dimensional imaging of static objects by at least a factor of three.
