c-light-sheet paper published

We are very happy to announce that our latest publication Light-sheet engineering using the Field Synthesis theorem by Bo-Jui Chang & Reto Fiolka has been published in Journal of Physics: Photonics. We leverage the recently discovered Field Synthesis theorem to create light-sheets where thickness and illumination confinement can be continuously tuned. Explicitly, we scan a line beam across a portion of an annulus mask on the back focal plane of the illumination objective. Since the scanning pattern on the back focal plane looks like a letter C, we chose to call them C-light-sheets. We experimentally characterize these light-sheets and we found the C-light-sheets tend to generate a better image in terms of resolution and contrast compared to the Bessel, Hexagonal lattice, and Square lattice light-sheets.
