Plug-and-play adaptive optics for commercial laser scanning fluorescence microscopes based on an adaptive lens
Optics Letters , Volume 45 - Issue 13 p. 3585- 3588
In this paper we present a solution for simple implementation of adaptive optics in any existing laser scanning fluorescence microscope. Adaptive optics is implemented by the introduction of a multi-actuator adaptive lens between the microscope body and the objective lens. Correction is performed with a sensorless method by optimizing the quality of the images presented on screen by the microscope software. We present the results acquired on both a commercial linear excitation confocal microscope and a custom made multiphoton excitation microscope.
