Benefits of ultrashort pulses in two-photon microscopy

Two-photon microscopy is an imaging technique invented by Denk, Webb and co-workers (Denk et al, 1990). The simple principles rely on simultaneous absorption of two-photons from a laser beam spatially focussed into a sample plane, to emit a fluorescent signal. The advantages of two-photon microscopy compared to conventional methods is the minimal effect of photo-bleaching […]

Time- keeping- a precise art

Optical clocks offer the most precise time-keeping in the world due to improved stability over the microwave clocks. The NPL (National Physical Laboratory) have demonstrated that time keeping can be done to the accuracy of one ten-millionth of a second per century. The counter used to measure this, with incredible accuracy, is a frequency comb. […]
