Multi-Color STED Microscopy with a Single Laser


Researchers have developed an optical system that enables the use of a single laser for multi-color STED microscopy. The cost and complexity of STED microscopes will be greatly reduced with the configuration developed by Prof. Ha that takes the light of a laser source, divide it, filter it and use it for STED imaging. The system has already been tested for dual color imaging and the use of dynamic filters will enable the simple introduction of more colors.
