ABSTRACT

In the last decades, progress in the development compact laser sources has brought to science and industry an enormous number of new applications. Previously, such lasers were mostly utilised in the communication and other industries. However, now such laser sources are becoming adopted in biomedicine and related fields. Here I will review some of the most promising applications where compact laser sources in UV/visible and near infrared wavelength ranges are being used in biophotonics, particularly focussing on multi-photon imaging and cancer diagnostics and photo treatment.
