Paper Abstract

Here, development of a low-cost structured illumination microscopy (SIM) based on a pico-projector is presented. The pico-projector consists of independent red, green and blue LEDs that remove need for an external illumination source. Moreover, display element of the pico-projector serves as a pattern generating spatial light modulator. A simple lens group is employed to couple light from the projector to an epi-illumination port of a commercial microscope system. 2D sub SIM images are acquired and synthesized to surpass the diffraction limit using 40x (0.75 NA) objective. Resolution of the reconstructed SIM images is verified with a dye-and-object object and a fixed cell sample.
