Title: METHOD FOR SCANNING ALONG A 3-DIMENSIONAL LINE AND METHOD FOR SCANNING A REGION OF INTEREST BY SCANNING A PLURALITY OF 3-DIMENSIONAL LINES
Abstract:
The invention relates to a method for scanning along a substantially straight line (3D line) lying at an arbitrary direction in a 3D space with a given speed using a 3D laser scanning microscope having a first pair of acousto-optic deflectors deflecting a laser beam in the x-z plane (x axis deflectors) and a second pair of acousto-optic deflectors deflecting the laser beam in the y-z plane (y axis deflectors) for focusing the laser beam in 3D. The invention further relates to a method for scanning a region of interest with a 3D laser scanning microscope having acousto-optic deflectors for focusing a laser beam within a 3D space defined by an optical axis (Z) of the microscope and X, Y axes that are perpendicular to the optical axis and to each other.
