SimpleMScanner is a collection of example tutorial code showing how to write acquisition software for a laser-scanning microscope. It will work with any scanning system from a transmitted light microscope with a photodiode, up to a 2-photon microscope. SimpleMScanner is not designed to be a complete application, but rather a teaching aid or perhaps even a basis upon which to begin writing a complete application. Examples are written for National Instruments acquisition hardware using both TMW Data Acquisition Toolbox and with a slightly lower level NI DAQmx wrapper.

No longer requires the Signal Processing Toolbox. Added an object-oriented version of the scanner code and also an example of how to write a GUI to control the scan object. The GUI serves as an example only and has limited functionality.
