WEBCAST: Learn the basics of multiphoton excitation in biomedical applications

Join BioOptics World tomorrow (Tuesday, July 17) at 11 a.m. EST for a free, live webcast covering multiphoton excitation (MPE) as applied to life sciences. To be led by John M. Girkin, Ph.D., director of the Biophysical Sciences Institute and professor in the department of physics at Durham University (Durham, England), the webcast presentation will explore specific practical aspects of applying this technology.

Dr. Girkin will discuss how deeply MPE can image, its limitations for in-vivo application, and the quality differential between two- and single-photon imagery. He will also cover how its depth capability compares to approaches like coherent anti-Stokes Raman scattering (CARS), as well as whether MPE can be combined with super-resolution microscopy techniques. And he'll discuss the reabsorption of second-harmonics-generated light within a specimen, and explore the possibilities around introducing novel technologies such as ultrashort pulses, automated pulse compression/pulse shaping, and optical fibers.

Be sure to bring any questions, as the presentation will conclude with a question-and-answer portion.
