    Abstract(s): 

    High resolution volumetric imaging technology has found a number of applications in many biological fields. However, the existing volumetric imaging tools are often time-consuming to use on large-scale specimens, such as centimeter-sized insects. In addition, most volumetric imaging systems discard the natural color information of the specimens. To surmount these limitations, we present a structured illumination-based approach capable of delivering a large field-of-view three-dimensional images. With this approach, full-color volumetric images and 3D morphological data in size range of typical insect samples can be obtained. This method provides a very promising approach that can be used to support many different types of entomological investigations.
