Scan head for laser scanning microscope. CARS image of laser ablated skin. Multiphoton excited autofluorescence image of spider silk.

Seeing is believing, which is why microscopy and imaging traditionally plays a central role in biological research. Many of the main bioimaging techniques are based on lights different interaction with the samples and therefore lasers play an increasingly important role in advanced bioimaging.

In this talk we will discuss some interesting recent developments and applications of lasers in bioimaging based on applications involving characterization of spider silk and human skin. The talk will cover techniques such as laser scanning confocal microscopy, Nonlinear optical microscopy, Coherent anti Stokes Raman scattering (CARS) microscopy and Stimulated emission depletion (STED) microscopy with a focus on the application of the different lasers used.
