  • Compact ultrafast semiconductor disk laser: targeting GFP based nonlinear applications in living organisms 

    Loza Álvarez, Pablo; Artigas García, David; Santos, Susana I.C.O.; Aviles Espinosa, Rodrigo; Filippidis, George; Hamilton, Craig; Malcolm, Graeme; Weingarten, Kurt J.; Südmeyer, Thomas; Barbarin, Yohan; Keller, Ursula (2011-03-01)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    We present a portable ultrafast Semiconductor Disk Laser (SDL) (or vertical extended cavity surface emitting laser—VECSELs), to be used for nonlinear microscopy. The SDL is modelocked using a quantum-dot semiconductor ...
  • Depth aberrations characterization in linear and nonlinear microscopy schemes using a Shack-Hartmann wavefront sensor 

    Aviles Espinosa, Rodrigo; Andilla, Jordi; Porcar-Guezenec, Rafael; Levecq, Xavier; Artigas García, David; Loza Álvarez, Pablo (2012)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    The performance of imaging devices such as linear and nonlinear microscopes (NLM) can be limited by the optical properties of the imaged sample. Such an important aspect has already been described using theoretical models ...
  • Measurement and correction of in vivo sample aberrations employing a nonlinear guide-star in two-photon excited fluorescence microscopy 

    Aviles Espinosa, Rodrigo; Andilla, Jordi; Porcar-Guezenec, Rafael; Olarte, Omar E.; Nieto, Marta; Levecq, Xavier; Artigas García, David; Loza Álvarez, Pablo (2011-11-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    We demonstrate that sample induced aberrations can be measured in a nonlinear microscope. This uses the fact that two-photon excited fluorescence naturally produces a localized point source inside the sample: the nonlinear ...
  • Third-harmonic generation for the study of Caenorhabditis elegans embryogenesis 

    Aviles Espinosa, Rodrigo; Santos, Susana I.C.O.; Brodschelm, Andreas; Kaenders, Wilhelm G.; Alonso Ortega, Cesar; Artigas García, David; Loza Álvarez, Pablo (2010-08)
    Article
    Open Access
    Live microscopy techniques i.e., differential interference contrast, confocal microscopy, etc. have enabled the understanding of the mechanisms involved in cells and tissue formation. In long-term studies, special ...
