the systems described so far require UV-Vis light which limits their applications. Two-Photon Excitation (TPE) in the near-infrared region is a promising alternative to UV-vis light due to the many advantages TPE provides such as three dimensional spatial resolution, lower scattering losses, and deeper penetration in tissues. [ 16 ] Very few TPE-triggered… CONTINUE READING
