Revolutionary Gigapixel 3D Microscope Captures Life in Jaw-Dropping Detail

Stitching videos from dozens of cameras together provides unique 3D view of macroscopic experiments with microscopic detail.

"It's like human vision," said Roarke Horstmeyer, assistant professor of biomedical engineering at Duke University. "If you merge multiple viewpoints together (as your two eyes do), you see objects from different angles, which gives you height. When our colleagues studying zebrafish used it for the first time, they were blown away. It immediately revealed new behaviors involving pitch and depth that they'd never seen before."


The scientific paper describing this work, "Parallelized computational 3D video microscopy of freely moving organisms at multiple gigapixels per second," was published March 20, 2023 in Nature Photonics.
