PMID-22831554 Swept field laser confocal microscopy for enhanced spatial and temporal resolution in live-cell imaging.

  • Invented by Marvin Minsky back in 1955 memoir!
  • Idea is not unlike light-sheet imaging -- sweep a confocal slit and laser line across a sample, rather than a pinhole and point, respectively.
  • This results in lower phototoxicity, but still reasonable rejection of out-of-focus light compared to widefield imaging.
