Outline

Two-photon fluorescence microscopes have been used to observe activities in tissues deep within living organisms. However, conventional two-photon fluorescence microscopes are limited by the near-infrared excitation laser, which cannot penetrate deep into living organisms owing to strong scattering and absorption within the tissues. In this work, I will develop an ultrashort pulse laser system operating at a longer wavelength region and apply it for a multi-photon microscope to overcome the limitations of conventional microscopes.
