Light as a tool for biologists: Recent developments

Björn, Lars Olof LU (2008) In Photobiology: The Science of Life and Light. 2nd ed. p.93-122
Abstract
After a brief introduction (1) this chapter covers: (2) optical tweezers and related techniques, (3) uses of lasers for ablation, desorption, ionization, and dissection, (4) fluorescent labeling, (5) Abbe's diffraction limit to spatial resolution in microscopy, (6) two-photon excitation fluorescence microscopy, (7) stimulated emission depletion (STED), (8) near-field microscopy, (9) quantum dots and their uses in biology, (10) photochemical internalization and caged compounds, (11) photogating of membrane channels, and (12) photo-crosslinking and photolabeling.
