Extension of multidimensional microscopy to
ultra-sensitive applications with maximum-likelihood analysis

Justin Crawford, William Robinson, Guoqing Shen, Lloyd Davis

We have developed and used Monte Carlo simulation programs for studies of the capabilities of maximum-likelihood based algorithms for unmixing the contributions from different species in multi-channel spectroscopic measurements and imaging experiments. Results of some of the studies are presented here:

Extension of multidimensional microscopy to ultrasensitive applications with maximum-likelihood analysis, Lloyd M. Davis and Guoqing Shen, in Three-Dimensional and Multidimensional Microscopy: Image Acquisition and Processing XIV, ed. by J.-A. Conchello, C.J. Cogswell, T. Wilson, Proceedings of SPIE 6443, 64430N, 1-12 (2007).

The algorithms have since been incorporated into a program written in C/C++ that can be guided by the user to either generate new simulated data or perform analysis on previously simulated, or experimental data.
