Our recent article in Optics Letters, Three-photon light-sheet fluorescence microscopy, was one of OLs most downloaded papers in November.
The paper was number 2 on the list, but we’re happy to be pipped to the post by Ashkin’s original paper on optical tweezers.
Check out the list of all the top downloads for November here.

Congratulations to Yoshi Arita, Adrià Escobet-Montalbán and colleagues for their recent works in photopolymerisation with twisted light and three-photon light-sheet fluorescence microscopy.
Yoshi’s article is one of the top 20 most read in the past 30 days in ACS Photonics:
Adrià’s article is currently the top download of today in Optics Letters:
The Optical Society of America (OSA) has highlighted our recent publication on Three-photon light-sheet fluorescence microscopy in a news article.
This work, published in Optics Letters, promises enable delivery of light much deeper and further into tissues, enabling high quality imaging throughout large, thick specimens, and could have implications for neuoroscience and high-throughput drug screening.
