Deep-brain imaging via epi-fluorescence Computational Cannula Microscopy

A recent paper written by the University of Utah utilises the gem 561 as an excitation source for widefield fluorescence microscopy and video imaging of the inside of a rodent’s brain, in a minimally invasive procedure. A surgical glass needle was used to guide the excitation light to the brain and transmit the fluorescence signals […]

Ultrafast adiabatic second harmonic generation

Second harmonic generation (SHG) is one of the most fundamental techniques used in the photonics laboratory. Widely used in many applications, such as nonlinear spectroscopy, it can suffer from low conversion efficiency to the higher-energy photon when used with short pulses as these can result in low phase-matching. A team from Tel Aviv University, led […]
