Nanotechnology has led to the manufacture of nanometer-sized objects which can be explored in multiphoton microscopy. In particular, metal nanoparticles (NPs) do not generate the multiphoton signal by itself, but rather it can enhance the nonlinear (NL) emission of fluorochromes, owing to the influence of local field effects. Energy transfer process is also… CONTINUE READING
