Paper Abstract

Two-photon scanning microscopes are imaging systems that are mainly featured by their unique depth-discrimination capacity when imaging three-dimensional objects. Along the past few years, our research group has done several attempts to improve their axial resolution by means of diffractive elements that properly shape the 3D point spread function. Our diffractive elements have been designed to work in the nonparaxial regime and are immune to a harmful effect, usually inherent to high-angle focusing systems, named as depolarization
