Patrycjusz Stremplewski visits Department of Pharmacology at Case Western Reserve University
Two-photon excitation fluorescence imaging of the back of the eye allows visualization of subcellular structures in the living animal eye. This method is helpful for investigating mechanisms of retinal diseases and development of ophthalmic therapies. However, anterior optics of the animal eye poorly transmit light at desired wavelengths.
To improve the TPEF imaging system Patrycjusz Stremplewski went to the Department of Pharmacology, Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland. The aim of these visits was to research a new excitation source delivering pulses of shorter duration and centered at optimized wavelength. New dispersion compensation unit, capable of compensating high order dispersion components was also introduced into the system.
