New imaging result highlighted by OSA

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.
