Advances in Nonlinear Optical Microscopy for Biophysical Research

Prof. Chen-Yuan Dong

Abstract

    Advances in nonlinear optics and microscopy techniques have contributed significantly to research in biological systems. Not only can imaging through the use of techniques such as multiphoton excitation and harmonic generation provided a wealth of information on biophysical phenomena, femtosecond laser assisted photoablation can also be used to process biological systems on the micron scale. In this presentation, I will discuss the recent development of nonlinear techniques and present examples from our laboratory in which the relevant methodology can be used to advance the study of in vivo biophysics. Future developments and impacts of our studies for biomedical research will be discussed.
