Selective Two-photon Excitation by Parametrically Shaped Laser Pulses after an Optical Fiber

Albrecht Lindinger

Abstract

Laser pulse shaping through optical fibers is reported for applications on two-photon processes in dye molecules. The presented method utilizes pre-compensation of the optical fiber properties by analytical pulse shaping in order to receive specific parametric pulse forms after the fiber including polarization modulation. Particularly phase-tailored pulse shapes at the distal fiber end are employed for two-photon fluorescence of dyes in a liquid environment in order to improve the contrast between dye markers having similar excitation spectra. This will lead to new endoscopic imaging applications with an increased fluorescence contrast.
