Selecting the Right Optics for Ultrafast Microscopy

Conference will begin: Tuesday, October 25, 2022
Presented by: Olivia Wheeler, Edmund Optics

Ultrafast lasers are being increasingly used in life science imaging techniques such as multiphoton microscopy. However, the short pulse durations and high peak powers of ultrafast lasers make selecting the right optical components — such as filters, objectives, and mirrors — to use with them especially important. Ultrafast multiphoton microscopy is ideal for capturing high-resolution three-dimensional images with reduced photobleaching and phototoxicity for brain, retina, and other biological imaging. Wheeler discusses how to choose the right optics to improve the performance of ultrafast microscopy systems, reduce losses, and decrease the likelihood of laser-induced damage.
