Paper

LED illumination for video-enhanced DIC imaging of single microtubules

Notes

  • They thermally insulate the LED from the condensing arm.
  • They only used a red, blue or green LED. They didn't attempt to combine the 3 to make white light.
  • Wow. They took the LEDs up to 2A!
  • Their flow cells are only 3mm in width.
  • HA! They used "BRB80" as their buffer.
  • They also wrote some custom LabVIEW 7.1 code using pattern matching algorithms. Man, we are not original.
  • Yep, they sufficiently proved to me that LEDs are the way to go for a condenser.
