Paper Abstract

Three-dimensional real-time imaging is a fundamental challenge for understanding dynamic processes. In this presentation, we propose a new method based on a tunable acoustic gradient lens integrated in a simple optical system. By synchronizing a pulsed LED with a high-speed camera, we are able to resolve a volume of 2 millimeters and 2 millimeters with depth 1 millimeter in 7 microseconds. A simulation model of the optical system is provided and serves as a useful tool for designing the optical system for the desired aspect-ratio of the imaging volume. The ability to resolve a volume in microseconds opens the door to exploring the fundamental dynamics in micro scale.
