multiphoton microscope
Semantic Type Listed - Research Device
Definition - Type of fluorescent microscope where fluorescence excitation is produced by two or more photons of light of longer wavelength that the fluorophore. On their own, these photons possess insufficient energy to excite the fluorophore but under certain conditions, the two photons can interact to produce excitation in a narrow focal plane.
