Paper Abstract

We present in vivo measurements of the excitation-wavelength dependence of the autofluorescence of major endogenous fluorophores of human skin with a multiphoton tomograph. For the investigation high-resolution multiphoton images at different depths inside the skin were recorded and the main fluorophores identified. In particular, for the autofluorescence of the fluorophores keratin, NAD(P)H, elastin and for the second-harmonic-generation light induced by collagen fibers clear trends are shown.
