Structured illumination plays an important role in advanced photographic and microscopic imaging applications. Here we report variable structured illumination (VSI) using Lissajous scanning techniques. The variable structured illumination module comprises Lissajous scanning micromirror and fiber-based diode pumped solid state (DPSS) laser with intensity modulation, combined with a stereo camera for dynamic stereo depth map. The micromirror projects static and discrete patterns by modulating the intensity of a laser beam at the least common multiple (LCM) of two scanning frequencies. The pattern density is increased by either decreasing the greatest common divisor (GCD) of scanning frequencies or decreasing the duty rate of the laser modulation. The scanning amplitude also controls the field-of-view (FOV) for the exact illumination of a target object for dynamic stereo depth map. The variable structured illumination module provides a new route for advanced imaging applications such as high-quality depth map, super-resolution, or motion recognition.
