Fresnel incoherent correlation holography (FINCH) is a new approach for incoherent holography, which also has enhancement in the transverse resolution. Structured illumination microscopy (SIM) is another promising super-resolution technique. SI-FINCH, the combination of SIM and FINCH, has been demonstrated lately for scattering objects. In this study, we extended the application of SI-FINCH toward fluorescent microscopy. We have built a versatile multimodal microscopy system that can obtain images of four different imaging schemes: conventional fluorescence microscopy, FINCH, SIM, and SI-FINCH. Resolution enhancements were demonstrated by comparing the point spread functions (PSFs) of the four different imaging systems by using fluorescence beads of 1-µm diameter.
