Multiphoton excitation with ultrashort laser pulses has enabled high-resolution imaging in biomedical applications, specifically for in-vivo analyses in neurosciences. With the growth of microscopy techniques, laser technology has evolved.
A new generation of femtosecond fiber lasers has recently emerged, outclassing conventional solid-state lasers, owing to their remarkable high performance, small size, low cost, and high reliability. The attractive features have proved to be key benefits in a various number of imaging applications, particularly in neurosciences.

Spark Lasers from Bordeaux, France, developed that unique fiber laser source specifically tailored to the needs of two-photon microscopy applications: the Alcor laser series.
