Holographic fluorescence mapping using space-division matching method

Ryosuke Abe, Yoshio Hayasaki

Three-dimensional mapping of fluorescence light sources was performed by using self-interference digital holography. The positions of the sources were quantitatively determined by using Gaussian fitting of the axial and lateral intensity distributions obtained from diffraction calculations through position calibration from the observation space to the sample space. A space-division matching method was developed to perform the mapping of many fluorescence light sources, in this experiment, 500 nm fluorescent nanoparticles fixed in gelatin. A fluorescence digital holographic microscope having a 60× objective lens with a numerical aperture of 1.25 detected 13 fluorescence light sources in a measurable region with a radius of View the MathML source and a height of View the MathML source. It was found that the measurable region had a conical shape resulting from the overlap between two beams.
