Kraw Lecture: 3D imaging of living cells in real time
Discovery in biology and medicine is strongly driven by new possibilities to visualize the processes of life. To see new things, the Saralab invents and custom builds new types of optical elements and imaging systems. Specific problems in Biology demand that we push technology to the limit in terms of both spatial and temporal resolution. In this Kraw Lecture learn how the SaraLab at UC Santa Cruz is harnessing the power of diffractive Fourier optics in microscopy enabling simultaneous 3D imaging that provides unique imaging compatible with several flavors of optical super-resolution.
