For investigating the emergence of neural circuit functions, it is a pressing necessity to establish microscopic technologies to visualize the morphology in a vaster area “in vivo” without degrading the resolution. This team aims to establish new super-resolution microcopy and “in vivo” deep imaging by developing a semi-conductor based laser light and by utilizing a novel laser light “vector beam”.
