Paper Abstract

Axial resolution in fluorescence microscopy can be improved significantly by using standing wave illumination to selectively excite planes within the depth of field of the microscope. When the specimen is thinner than 0.18 micrometers , an estimate of its 3D structure may be determined from three images within the same focal plane without re-focusing. Thicker objects require a combination of multi-focal-plane data and/or a priori knowledge.
