This talk will review the development of wide-field and confocal microscopes with direct wavefront sensing and adaptive optics for correcting aberrations when imaging through thick tissues (Drosophila embryos and mouse brain tissue).? Similar to the wavefront measurement using รข??artificial guide stars” in astronomical imaging, where atomic sodium in a layer in the Earth’s mesosphere at an altitude of 95 km is excited at resonance by a high-power sodium laser, we have developed an approach for making wavefront measurements using implanted fluorescent reference beacons for use as artificial guide stars.? Using this approach we show that the Strehl ratio can be improved by an order of magnitude when imaging through thick tissue samples.
This “MEMS Application” talk expands on our April talk on Developments in MEMS Packaging (www.cpmt.org/scv/meetings/cpmt1105.html). You may download those slides.
