Starting with the invention of Multi-Photon Excitation (MPE) Microscopy in 1991, Ultrafast lasers entered biological imaging and research laboratories. The short duration and high peak power of the infrared pulses of light generated by these lasers allowed to image cellular structures and tissues more in depth than any other non-invasive microscopy techniques, and on living (and surviving) animals. ? In the last decade, other Non-Linear Optics Microscopy techniques using Ultrafast lasers have been developed like Harmonic and CARS Microscopy. Each of these brings its original contribution to providing in-vivo information-rich images of animal and human subjects as well. ? The development of these novel microscopy techniques is further enabled by each new generation of Ultrafast lasers and, in turn, drives the industry to develop new, dedicated laser sources.
