    Project Summary

sopiDesign and construction of a light-sheet microscope (LSM) for rapid in-vivo volumetric imaging. Optical sectioning is an inherent challenge for volumetric imaging, due to traditional strategies (like confocal or other laser-scanning techniques) being too slow to image dynamic processes, as well as causing photobleaching that alters sample biochemistry. Scanned oblique plane illumination (SOPi) is a single-objective implementation of LSM that is sterically accessible for imaging any sized sample, and performs optical sectioning that is undistorted during scanning of the light-sheet. The utility of this SOPi microscopy platform will be realized through collaborative work within and outside of the Biophotonics Center.
