Ion-Beam-Sputtered (IBS) Thin-film Interference Filters for Nonlinear Optical Imaging

ABSTRACT Nonlinear optical (NLO) microscopy is emerging as a powerful technique for the study of biological samples.  By combining several different imaging modalities such as multiphoton (MP) fluorescence, second-harmonic and third-harmonic generation (SHG and THG), and coherent Raman scattering techniques such as coherent anti-Stokes Raman scattering (CARS) and stimulated Raman scattering (SRS), it is possible…
