Can two-photon scanning be too fast?

The following back-of-the-envelope calculations do not lead to any useful result, but you might be interested in reading through them if you want to get a better understanding of what happens during two-photon excitation microscopy. The basic idea of two-photon microscopy … Continue reading

EODs for kHz imaging

J. Schneider et al., and S. Hell recently published a paper on STED microscopy, using EODs (electro-optical deflectors) to scan 512 x 512 pixels at frame rates of 1000 Hz. Compared to AODs, EODs offer the costumer-friendly advantage of not dispersing … Continue reading
