Abstract

In this paper, we propose a fluorescence encoded super resolution technique based on an estimation algorithm to determine locations of high-density fluorescence emitters. In our method, several types of fluorescence coded probes are employed to reduce densities of target molecules labeled with individual codes. By applying an estimation algorithm to each coded image, the locations of the high density probes can be determined. Due to multiplexed fluorescence imaging, this approach will provide fast super resolution microscopy. In experiments, we evaluated the performance of the method using probes with different fluorescence wavelengths. Numerical simulation results show that the locations of probes with the density of 200 \(\mu\)m\(^{-2}\), which is a typical membrane-receptor expression level, are determined with acquisition of 16 different coded images.
