Paper Abstract

We present potential biomedical applications for a diode- pumped ultrafast Cr:LiSGAF oscillator-amplifier system. A whole-field fluorescence lifetime imaging system has been demonstrated for the first time using such a laser system. Fluorescence lifetime imaging of unstained biological tissue in vitro using this instrument has shown contrast between different tissue constituents. Initial results of applying this laser system to the ablation of glass are also presented.
