Paper Abstract

Compressed ultrafast photography (CUP) is a new imaging technique which incorporates the high-speed imaging capabilities of a streak camera with principles from compressed sensing to allow for single-shot, ultrafast imaging of optical phenomena at up to 100 billion frames per second1. While this technique has primarily been utilized to observe physical phenomena, it has broad ranging application to biological imaging including fluorescence lifetime microscopy, and single-shot hyperspectral imaging2. Additionally, similar optical systems can be used to for streak camera microscopy (SCM), enabling the resolution of sub microsecond changes in cellular membrane potential in response to electrical stimulation3. Here, we present several applications for CUP based imaging and spectroscopy as a novel tool to enable more rapid biological imaging and sensing.
