We investigate the imaging properties of high-aperture multifocal multiphoton microscopy on the basis of diffraction theory. Particular emphasis is placed on the relationship between the sectioning property and the distance between individual foci. Our results establish a relationship between the degree of parallelization and the axial resolution for both two- and three-photon excitation. In addition, we show quantitatively that if a matrix of temporal delays is inserted between the individual… Expand
Time-multiplexed multifocal multiphoton microscope.
TLDR
This work resolves the classical conflict between parallelization and axial resolution in three-dimensional fluorescence microscopy through time-multiplexed multifocal multiphoton excitation and shows substantial improvement of contrast and resolution. Expand
Fiber-bundle illumination: realizing high-degree time-multiplexed multifocal multiphoton microscopy with simplicity
TLDR
The highest degree of time multiplexing ever achieved in multifocal multiphoton microscopy is experimentally demonstrated, and hence the potential of using simply-manufactured devices for scanningless optical sectioning of biological systems is demonstrated. Expand

Multiphoton structured thin-plane imaging with a single optical path.
TLDR
This work presents a novel optical-sectioning method that produces a thin plane of illumination by exploiting the spatial and temporal properties of multiphoton excitation, and shows an example of such an approach, which achieves axial resolution finer than confocal microscopy. Expand
Remote focusing for programmable multi-layer differential multiphoton microscopy
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the remote focusing control can be synchronized with the lateral scan directions, enabling imaging in orthogonal scan planes, and facilitates volumetric multiphoton imaging in scattering specimens. Expand
RECENT PROGRESS IN MULTIFOCAL MULTIPHOTON MICROSCOPY.
TLDR
This paper presents the recent work on the development of an MMM using a spatial light modulator (SLM), and discusses the features of several MMM setups using different beamsplitting devices, including a Nipkow spinning disk, a microlens array, a set of beams plitting mirrors, or a diffractive optical element (DOE).

A pragmatic guide to multiphoton microscope design.
TLDR
A guide to aid in the design of a multiphoton microscope and discusses source selection, optical management of dispersion, image-relay systems with scan optics, objective-lens selection, single-element light-collection theory, photon-counting detection, image rendering, and finally, an illustrated guide for building an example microscope.

Two-dimensional imaging without scanning by multifocal multiphoton microscopy.
TLDR
The axial sectioning capability of the setup is discussed in detail by means of the step response in which the foci are scanned axially into a uniformly fluorescent medium, comparable with an ordinary single-beam two-photon microscope. Expand
