Ultrafast Light Source at 1.8 µm Based on Thulium-Doped Fibers for Three-Photon Microscopy

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access


Ultrafast laser systems operating around 1.7 µm to 1.8 µm are powerful tools to extend the penetration depth of mulitphoton microscopes [1, 2]. However, radiation at this wavelength region is not readily available and thus frequency shifting was necessary to obtain the desired wavelength. Here, we demonstrate an ultrafast thulium-doped fiber laser system generating the spectrum covering the 1.8 µm region, whose output pulses have sufficient intensity for three-photon excitation necessary for multiphoton microscopes.
