Abstract

We demonstrate dual-Airy-beam-scanning-based volumetric two-photon microscopy (TPM) with depth-resolving capability. A pair of Airy beams with opposite acceleration is used as the excitation lights to sequentially illuminate the sample, and depth information can be resolved based on the deflection of the Airy beam. The depth-resolving range of the volumetric TPM is up to 32 μm. The advantages of the depth-resolved volumetric TPM are the depth-resolving capability over Bessel-beam-based TPM and less scanning times over traditional Gaussian-beam-based TPM. The depth-resolved volumetric TPM provides a promising fast imaging tool to study the dynamics in neural biology.
