“Random illumination microscopy (RIM) : some advances and biological applications”

Current super-resolution microscopy (SRM) methods suffer from an intrinsic complexity that might curtail their routine use in cell biology. We describe here random illumination microscopy (RIM) for live-cell imaging at super-resolutions matching that of 3D structured illumination microscopy, in a robust fashion. Based on speckled illumination and variance matchning process called AlgoRIM [1-2-3], easy to implement and user-friendly, RIM is unaffected by optical aberrations on the excitation side, linear to brightness, and compatible with multicolor live-cell imaging over extended periods of time . AlgoRIM is compatible with various RIM extensions which leads to use one single including TIRF RIM, RIM, mutliplane 3DRIM,exRIM. In the best case a resolution of 76nm is possible in TIRF RIM as well as around 120-140nm on 3D live sample until 100µm depth. The recent technological advances, allow to implement RIM on a basic microscope for a rate of 1300hz in two colors, and a lightened synchronization with the scmos detectors in comparison with the SIM technology.

The eye is an optical window giving access to neural networks in a non-invasive way. It is possible to find in the retina biomarkers informing about the pathological state of other parts of the human body, and in particular of the brain. Neurodegenerative diseases could thus be diagnosed early and monitored by high-resolution imaging of the retina. However, a large part of the neurons in the retina are too transparent to be detected by existing techniques. At the Quinze-Vingts hospital, we have a unique retinal imaging platform in which ophthalmologists, neurologists and engineers participate. We implemented a technique based on scanning laser ophthalmoscopy (SLO) to capture the fine variations in refractive index between retinal cells. In this project we aimed at imaging and monitor cellular changes on transparent cells in the retinal ganglion cells layer in vivo on healthy participants and patients with neurodegenerative diseases.

Wavefront shaping using acousto-optic deflectors allows fast 3D recording of neuronal activity and transcranial imaging
Optically recording unitary neuronal activity with millisecond temporal resolution, in 3D, at large depths and in the behaving animal, is a major challenge in neuroscience. Acousto- optic deflectors (AODs) are known to be fast 2D-scanning devices. We have recently shown that they can be also used a fast beam shaping devices by synchronizing the laser pulses of low-repetition rate laser (typically a 40 kHz regenerative amplifier) with the update of the acoustic pattern in the AODs. In this configuration, the wavefront of every single laser pulse is individually patterned in phase and amplitude. We implemented this technique in a 2 photon microscope to perform (i) fast 3D serial recording at kHz rate of selected individual targets and (ii) transcranial widefield 2D-imaging using aberration and scattering corrections.
