We will briefly introduce the principles of light sheet fluorescence microscopy (LSFM, or single plane illumination microscopy - SPIM), will continue with its major advantages (short/selective laser exposure; low phototoxicity) which in particular allow for long-term monitoring of living specimens. Further, we will present our own experimental SPIM platform at Fraunhofer IZI, ending up with some recent applications.
