Abstract

We report on the use of a computer-controlled digital micromirror device (DMD) to select discrete wavelength ranges from a white-light supercontinuum and the application of the light source to confocal laser scanning microscopy (CLSM). The fast switching rate of the DMD enabled video-rate wavelength tuning, while the high resolution allowed precise control over the bandwidth selection. The DMD system was used in conjunction with a CLSM system to characterize the wavelength switching capability, prior to performing three-dimensional CLSM of a variety of multiple-labeled samples in order to demonstrate the efficacy and practical application of the system.
