LSM 7 MP and LSM 710 NLO

Multiphoton microscopy (MPM) systems use femtosecond lasers. This pulsed, ultrafast infrared laser excites fluorescent dyes at the focus – the only place where photon density is high enough to produce fluorescence. This focus results in only a small amount of their light being absorbed by biological tissues, compared with visible excitation light.
