Novel 3D microscope provides unprecedented moving images of biological processes

This article explores the work of Dr Chunqiang Li from the University of Texas at El Paso has developed a novel 3D optical microscope that uses a spectrally shaped pulse laser.

Dr Chunqiang Li and his team of the University of Texas at El Paso have developed a novel three-dimensional (3D) optical microscope that uses a spectrally shaped pulse laser. Whilst most prior microscopes used scanning to achieve high speed 2D imaging, Dr Li’s approach obtains the z-position from a technique called ‘temporal focusing’ that use ‘diffraction’ rings and clever mathematics […]
