The multiple signal classification algorithm has been widely used in array signal processing for direction-of-arrival estimations. In this paper, we applied this algorithm to estimate fluorescence lifetimes for fluorescence lifetime imaging microscopy (FLIM) for the first time to our knowledge. Monte Carlo simulations were carried out to test its performances in comparison with the previously reported integral equation method, center-of-mass method and phasor method. Simulation results show that the proposed algorithm can achieve comparable or better results than the others. More importantly, it can easily resolve multi-exponential decays.
