Imaging three-dimensional, subcellular structures with high axial resolution has always been the core purpose of fluorescence microscopy. However, trade-offs exist between axial resolution and other important technical indicators, such as temporal resolution, optical power density, and imaging process complexity. We report a new imaging modality, fluorescence interference structured illumination microscopy (FI-SIM), which is based on three-dimensional structured illumination microscopy for wide-field lateral imaging and fluorescence interference for axial reconstruction. FI-SIM Moreover, the relatively low laser power density relaxes the requirements for dyes and enables a wide range of applications for observing fixed and live subcellular structures.
