PhasorPy: A Python Library for Phasor Analysis of FLIM and Spectral Imaging

Project PhasorPy
Funding Cycle 5

Proposal Summary

To develop an open Python library and community between spectroscopy and fluorescence microscopy users that is both accessible and self-sustainable in the long term.



Time-resolved Fluorescence Lifetime Imaging Microscopy (FLIM) and hyperspectral imaging (HSI) create a combination between traditional imaging and spectroscopy that opens the possibility to address previously inaccessible information. However, public accessibility for programs that can complete FLIM and HSI imaging is limited. This project seeks to develop a Python-based library called PhasorPy to transform an existing software into an open source code that will support transparency, reuse, and extensibility in a growing spectroscopic bioimaging community.
