Open Access research with a European policy impact...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the European Policies Research Centre (EPRC).

EPRC is a leading institute in Europe for comparative research on public policy, with a particular focus on regional development policies. Spanning 30 European countries, EPRC research programmes have a strong emphasis on applied research and knowledge exchange, including the provision of policy advice to EU institutions and national and sub-national government authorities throughout Europe.

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.
