Abstract
Fluorescence diffuse imaging suffers from limited spatial resolution. In this

letter, we report a scanning imaging approach to increase the resolution of

fluorescence diffuse imaging using nonlinear fluorophores. The resolution of

a linear flurophore was compared with nonlinear upconverting nanoparticles

(NaYF4 : Yb3+ /Tm3+ ) in a tissue phantom. A resolution improvement of a

factor of 1.3 was found experimentally. Simulations suggested a maximum

resolution improvement of a factor of 1.45. Usage of nonlinear fluorophores

is a promising method for increasing the spatial resolution in fluorescence

diffuse imaging. c 2010 Optical Society of America
