Super-resolution microscopy is a subset of methods known as stimulated emission depletion (STED) microscopy.
It produces super-resolution pictures by selectively deactivating fluorophores, reducing the area of illumination at the focal point, and increasing the resolution that can be achieved for a particular system.
One of several kinds of super resolution microscopy methods newly created to increase resolution beyond the diffraction limit of light microscopy is STED microscopy.
The non-linear response of fluorophores, which are frequently used to label biological samples, is exploited by STED, a deterministic functional method, to increase resolution and enable the capture of images at resolutions lower than the diffraction limit.
The Global Stimulated emission depletion microscopy market accounted for $XX Billion in 2022 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2023 to 2030.
A super-resolution method for nanoscopy has been developed, called stimulated emission depletion (STED) microscopy.
STED microscopy has advanced significantly and is frequently employed in clinical research. But in actual use, there is some unwanted background noise that degrades the quality of the picture and the spatial resolution.
Over the past few decades, significant background removal techniques have been developed. These can be broken down into three groups: phasor-domain, time-domain, and space-domain. Some of these techniques date back a long time, while others were created more recently.
While effective methods for reducing unwanted noise in STED microscopy images, each one has drawbacks such as image distortion, extended acquisition periods, or the addition of shot noise.
The promise of STED microscopy has not yet been fully realized.Researchers have recently developed a novel technique dubbed “dual-modulation difference” STED (dmdSTED) to selectively and successfully suppress backgrounds, as documented in Advanced Photonics.
The process works by converting space-domain signals into frequency-domain signals, which makes it simple to distinguish between the desired fluorescent signals and non-depleted fluorescence as well as STED-induced noise.
Different time-domain modulations are correspondingly loaded into the excitation and depletion beams. A depletion laser with a wavelength closer to the peak of the fluorescence emission spectrum of the sample can be chosen, lowering the necessary depletion intensity because it prevents the re-excitation produced by the depletion beam.
