Author Affiliations +
We present the development of a fluorescence lifetime imaging microscopy system using a streak camera (SC-FLIM), which uses ultrafast infrared laser for multiphoton excitation and a streak camera for lifetime measurement. A pair of galvo mirrors are employed to accomplish quick time-resolved scanning on a line and 2D fluorescence lifetime imaging. The SC-FLIM system was calibrated using an F-P etalon and several standard fluorescent dyes, and was also used to perform fluorescence lifetime imaging of fluorescent microspheres and a prepared plant stem slide.
