Life Science & Medical

As the biosciences have evolved and diversified over the past 50 years so have the laser applications and technologies used within it.  Because of their early adoption of laser technology, the medical, biomedical, and life sciences have made rapid progress, including the complete mapping of the human genome.    Some of the most widely used medical laser applications include aesthetics (such as laser hair removal and tattoo removal), dental surgery, and photodynamic therapy.  On the research side of things, the most popular life science laser application is fluorescence.  Fluorescence has become so popular that it has been subdivided into a wide range of different applications, which each  warrant their own field of study.  This includes but is not limited to flow cytometry, DNA sequencing, confocal fluorescence microscopy, and fluorescence-lifetime imaging microscopy.  More recently ultra-fast lasers have become more prevalent in fluorescence microscopy enabling multiphoton excitation allowing users to create high-resolution fluorescence images of living cells, without damaging the cells in the process.
