AbstractWe present a new method to perform high-speed axial scanning for selective plane illumination microscopy (SPIM) using a liquid crystal-spatial light modulator (LC-SLM). In our system, translation of the detection focal plane is achieved by projecting the emissions to the back of the galvanometric mirror, which subsequently scans the emission beam across an LC-SLM, where different regions are coded with designed phase modulating patterns. Accordingly, the transverse scanning performed by the galvanometric scanner is effectively converted to axial scanning. Synchronization is automatically achieved as two sides of the galvanometric mirror are simultaneously used to scan the illumination and emission beams. Practically, axial scanning speed is equivalent to the speed of the galvanometric scanner, i.e., 10s kHz, which enables video-rate volumetric imaging for SPIM.
