Shedding new light on optical microscopy
At the intersection between molecular biology and in vivo imaging is molecular imaging. Progress in technology during recent decades has leveraged the development of high-resolution microscopy. Light microscopy – invented more than 400 years ago – is among the least invasive techniques used to access information from biological scales in living cells. The EU-funded DEEP3P project will address one of the main limitations of optical microscopy: light scattering confines it to the outermost tissue layers. The aim of the project is to establish scattering correction through wavefront shaping in higher-order multiphoton microscopy (three-photon fluorescence imaging) to surpass the scattering barrier and reach unprecedented depths in optical microscopy.
