Spatial modulation microscopy for real-time imaging of plasmonic nanoparticles and cells

Record type: Article

Spatial modulation microscopy (SMM) is a technique originally developed for quantitative spectroscopy of individual nano-objects. Here, a parallel implementation of the SMM technique is demonstrated based on a line detector capable of demodulation at kHz frequencies. The capabilities of the imaging system are shown using an array of plasmonic nanoantennas and dendritic cells incubated with gold nanoparticles
