Most multiphoton imaging has been undertaken using tuneable femtosecond Ti:Sapphire lasers which are large, expensive and require a level of laser expertise to operate. Although new commercial, computer controlled systems are becoming available they are still complex instruments. We report on the development of a range of novel laser sources for multiphoton microscopy based upon optically pumped semiconductor materials.
