Particle tracking

Participant: Hugues Talbot (Collaboration: Alessandro Benfenati, Universita di Milano, Francesco Bonacci, Laboratoire Navier, Tarik Bourouina, ESIEE Paris)

Fluorescent bead tracking is important in biomedical application related to biomechanics, rheology and fluid dynamics. We have made several contributions for the detection and tracking of micrometer-scale fluorescent bead in 3D confocal microscopy [47], [61]. Many software packages exist for 2D tracking but almost none exist for 3D. It is a harder problem because in general beads are not fixed and move between plane acquisitions, due to the relatively slow scanning characteristics of confocal microscopy.
