Propagation of an ultrashort pulse of light through strongly scattering media generates an intricate spatio-spectral speckle that can be described by means of the multi-spectral transmission matrix (MSTM). In conjunction with a spatial light modulator, the MSTM enables the manipulation of the pulse leaving the medium; in particular focusing it at any desired spatial position and/or time. Here, we demonstrate how to engineer the point-spread-function of the focused beam both spatially and… Expand

Patterned two-photon illumination by spatiotemporal shaping of ultrashort pulses.
It is shown that although the properties of a holographic beam significantly differ from those of plane-wave illumination used in previous temporal focusing realizations, this leads only to a slightly reduced axial resolution. Expand
Transmission matrix approaches for nonlinear fluorescence excitation through multiple scattering media.
This Letter compares the different techniques on micrometer-size isolated fluorescent beads and demonstrates point-scanning imaging of these fluorescent microbeads located after a thick scattering medium at a depth where conventional imaging would be impossible because of scattering effects. Expand
