Facecrap, Bezosism, and more: THE WEEKLY RECAP (2021#37)

Really packed week, so let’s start right away. Another year, another amazing contest of scientific photography. I particularly liked the third place, though all the images are really impressive. 2021 PHOTOMICROGRAPHY COMPETITION, on nikonsmallworld Nintendo being Nintendo Honestly, I thought that after 4 years they were not going to add bluetooth support for headphones, even…More

Simultaneous multiplane imaging with reverberation multiphoton microscopy

Really nice pre-print by the people at Boston University, leaded by J. Mertz. Love the idea of generating ~infinite focal spots (until you run out of photons) inside a sample, and using a extremely fast single-pixel detector to recover the signal. Very original way to tackle volumetric imaging in bio-imaging! Simultaneous multiplane imaging with reverberation…More

De-scattering with Excitation Patterning (DEEP) Enables Rapid Wide-field Imaging Through Scattering Media

Very interesting stuff from the people at MIT regarding imaging through scattering media. Recently, multiple approaches taking advantage of temporal focusing (TF) increased efficiency inside scattering media when using two-photon microscopy have been published, and this goes a step further. Here, the authors use wide-field structured illumination, in combination with TF, to obtain images with…More
