A versatile, low-cost, snapshot multidimensional imaging approach based on structured light

Forskningsoutput: TidskriftsbidragArtikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift


The behaviour and function of dynamic samples can be investigated using optical imaging approaches with high temporal resolution and multidimensional acquisition. Snapshot techniques have been developed in order to meet these demands, however they are often designed to study a specific parameter, such as spectral properties, limiting their applicability. Here we present and demonstrate a frequency recognition algorithm for multiple exposures (FRAME) snapshot imaging approach, which can be reconfigured to capture polarization, temporal, depthof- focus and spectral information by simply changing the filters used. FRAME is implemented by splitting the emitted light from a sample into four channels, filtering the light and then applying a unique spatial modulation encoding before recombining all the channels. The multiplexed information is collected in a single exposure using a single detector and extracted in post processing of the Fourier transform of the collected image, where each channel image is located in a distinct region of the Fourier domain. The approach allows for individual intensity control in each channel, has easily interchangeable filters and can be used in conjunction with, in principle, all 2D detectors, making it a low cost and versatile snapshot multidimensional imaging technique.
