Fast High-resolution Miniature Two-photon Microscopy

    Fast high-resolution miniaturized two-photon microscope (FHIRM-TPM) is accomplish to image of brain activity at the single dendritic spine level in freely behaving animals over a prolonged time period. With a headpiece weighing 2.6 g and a new type of hollow-core photonic crystal fiber to deliver 920-nm femtosecond laser pulses, the FHIRM-TPM is capable of imaging commonly used biosensors at high spatiotemporal resolution. Thus, our new generation miniature microscope provides neuroscientists the long-sought tool-of-choice for imaging the brain at the synaptic level in freely-behaving animals.

  FHIRM-TPM consists of three partsWith a headpiece weighing 2.6 g, a benchtop two-photon microscope and a main control unit ( 600 mm×552 mm×859 mm).
