"PowerUp Your Microscope" is a software package designed and realized for the optimization of 3D optical microscopy image quality using the Internet and inverse problems computational approaches. The package is mainly devoted to 3D microscopy users, being operative for wide-field, confocal, and multiphoton microscopy. It provides the microscopy community with an extremely easy and comparatively powerful access to advanced image restoration methods. The core of the computational section is the optical system modeling and inverse deconvolution implementation, which is strongly linked to Web-based software and technology. This project constitutes a real and effective migration to the Web, extending computational approaches to image restoration to the whole microscopy user community, regardless of their background.
