Abstract

Frequency up-conversion of established high-performance ultrafast sources in the nearinfrared represents an attractive method to access the technologically important blue and UV spectral regions. The high peak intensities of ultrafast pulses allow for better utilization of the available nonlinearity, and the short duration of the resulting up-converted pulses gives increased functionality in such areas as time-resolved spectroscopy. Significantly, a simplified, compact and portable femtosecond blue laser source represents an excellent tool in the field of biomedicine.
