J Cell Biol 187:733–747 Chapter 2 Two-Photon Excitation Microscopy and Its Applications in Neuroscience Ricardo Mostany, Amaya Miquelajauregui, Matthew Shtrahman, and Carlos Portera-Cailliau Abstract Two-photon excitation (2PE) overcomes many challenges in fluorescence microscopy. Compared to confocal microscopy, 2PE microscopy improves depth penetration, owing to the longer excitation wavelength required and to the ability to collect scattered emission photons as a useful signal. It also minimizes photodamage because lower energy photons are used and because fluorescence is confined to the geometrical focus of the laser spot.

Since then, 2PE has become widely popular for in vivo imaging of neuronal structure because of its superior depth penetration and reduced photobleaching compared to confocal or epifluorescence microscopy [8]. Imaging deeper with 2PE is achieved by means of excitation with an infrared laser and optics that collect much of the scattered emitted light, while maintaining excellent spatial resolution. , calcium imaging). Both advantages make 2PE ideally suited to chronic in vivo imaging in the intact brain.
