Abstract

We report on the development of a miniature, flexible, fiber-optic scanning endoscope for two-photon fluorescence imaging. The endoscope uses a tubular piezoelectric actuator for achieving two-dimensional beam scanning and a double-clad fiber for delivery of the excitation light and collection of two-photon fluorescence. Real-time imaging of fluorescent beads and cancer cells has been performed.
